HOFFMAN APPALACHIAN HOPS FARM FUNDRAISER TOUR CANCELLED.

We had to make the hard decision to cancel the Hops tour due to Covid. Numbers are rising and although it is ‘safe’ to be outside during these times we did not want to take any chances.
Being outdoors is good for both physical and mental health. We encourage everyone to spend time outside daily. Due to numbers going up, do so in a safe manner. Social distance with anyone not in your family, wear a mask if not, sanitize regularly, etc. If you feel sick STAY HOME! Be safe and enjoy the open-air!

We are proud to announce we will be hosting a fundraiser with Hoffman Appalachian Hops Farm in St Marys, PA on August 12 from 5- 7 PM.
This Hoffman Appalachian Hops Farm Tour will highlight the importance of this growing industry and what it means to the more than 400 craft brewers in Pennsylvania and to Elk County's local economy. Hoffman Appalachian is only one of 17 hops farms in PA. PA also has 410 craft brewers and ranks 3rd most in the US. While many craft breweries serve a local market, they haven’t always sourced local ingredients for their beers due to supply. Expanding hops production is a new priority for the PA Department of Agriculture to meet this need. The tour will also underscore potential for new business development in the processing of hops prior to the sale to breweries.
Participants will need to be 21 or older. There will be a $25 entry fee for individuals and $40 entry fee for couples. You can register for the event at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/163210774821. You can also find the link on our Website (hwct.org) or our Facebook page (@HeadWatersCT). There will be a 30 person limit at the event.
For questions contact Janie French at Jfrench@hwct.org. Hope to see you there!

At Headwaters Charitable Trust, we are celebrating National Pennsylvania Day. Our state was the second to join the union in 1787 behind Delaware and followed by New Jersey. Beyond the significant 
history of the state, Pennsylvania is well known for it’s craft beers, famous chocolate and outdoor experiences. Our state bird is the ruffed grouse, our state animal the white tail deer and our state 
flower is Mountain Laurel. Pennsylvania leads the nation in rural population, number of licensed hunters, State Game Lands, covered bridges, meat packing plants, mushroom production, potato chip 
production, pretzel bakeries and sausage production. It’s easy to understand why our economy relies on our agriculture, natural resources and tourism.
The Trust was formed on July 20, 1988, as a publicly supported foundation which operates as a non profit. It was created by a seven-member board who approved a “Declaration of Trust.” This declaration 
outlined the new organization’s purpose, which is to seek private and public funds to finance natural resource based economic development. In 2016, The Trust initiated a new strategic direction that highlights more of the economic impacts of our work. Our tag line “Employment, Enjoyment, Ecology” is 
predicated on a natural resource based economy that increases green collar jobs in water management, recreational development and agricultural sustainability. There is a ripple effect on economic impact from direct jobs, supply chain jobs and tourism/recreation jobs. The Trust’s approach reinforces the 
importance of natural resource on local economies. Agribusiness and tourism combined have a total economic impact of $176.7 billion dollars in Pennsylvania. As a non profit, we invite you to help us 
continue to support our work. Please visit www.hwct.org to learn more about how your donations can help.

Post from last summer: 

Have you noticed some trees dying perhaps in your backyard or while driving? If you are an avid fisherman with a favorites stream and noticed a decline fish numbers? The changing climate can be a key factor with these changing conditions. We are hearing a lot more about climate change in the news. 
Climate Change is a global issue with local impacts. Changes in pH, temperature or precipitation can disturb that balance and have devastating effects on our natural resources. Trees such as Blue Spruce are dying from a fungus which is being compounded due to higher temperatures and more intensive rainfalls. Acid deposition also called acid rain is a chemical reaction to toxins released by emissions creates airborne sulfuric and nitric acid. in the form of rain, snow or smog impacts ecosystems by making lakes, streams and wetlands more acidic. While some fish species can survive under more acidic conditions, most species like the brook trout cannot. The increased acidity deteriorates their gills. In addition, acid rain harms soil quality by breaking down soil compounds and removing important nutrients like calcium. The acid also eats away trees’ leaves and needles.
Headwaters Charitable Trust has been working to restore streams impacted by acid deposition through some of the same technologies that are used to reduce abandoned mine drainage. We are seeing fisheries rebound. However, addressing the broader impacts of climate change on our landscapes will take innovation and policy changes. According to the same Pew Research poll, two-thirds of Americans (67%) said the federal government wasn’t doing enough to reduce the effects of climate change.

All of this is still relevant and we need to make a change!

During the summer we’re all spending a lot more time planning what food we need, constantly prepping meals and definitely craving fresh produce!
Food is much more important for little ones and adults when running around and sweating in the summer heat. 
A fun summer activity is to go to local farms to get fresh produce whether your picking it yourself or just supporting a local farm!
Farmers are so important and dont get enough credit for the work they do. Farmers work harder than many other professions. They’re up before the sun and working long after dark. Farmers care deeply about the food they grow and the animals they raise. They have so much pride in what they do and strive to deliver the very best product they can. Farmers are up against so much every single day, like droughts and floods, insects and blight, trade wars and political fights. And now, they’re facing closed restaurants and schools, two major industries they supply.
If you’re wondering what you can do to help your community and support your local farmers. You’ll be boosting your local economy and nabbing some amazing food in the process. 

You can read about how to support local farms/businesses this July!

5 Years ago Headwaters Charitable Trust was pleased to announce we received $1,356,840 from the state Department of Environmental Protection for four projects in the Mill Creek and Toby Creek watersheds.
Projects in both watersheds address the rehabilitation of abandoned mine drainage treatment systems. Grant applications were submitted to the PA Growing Greener Program on behalf of Mill Creek Coalition of Clarion and Jefferson Counties and the Toby Creek Watershed Association of Elk and Jefferson Counties.

Sunday June 20th was the longest day of the year, the first day of Summer, aka “The Summer solstice”! Summer is for taking in the sunshine and breathing in the fresh air!

Here are some things to do this summer:

Camp: Grab your significant other or friends or family and pitch a tent in the back yard or visit a local state park and make memories while you are camping.  Roasting marshmallows and hot dogs around a campfire are memories that will last a life time.
Light a bonfire: Grab your S’mores making materials and have a bonfire (where it is safe). There are fire pits for sale at many home improvement stores that help to make this a safe option for many.
Barbecue for dinner: Whether you are cooking with gas or charcoal, you can barbecue a delicious dinner and cut a few slices of watermelon to celebrate summer.  Add some grilled corn and it’s the best dinner ever!
Enjoy a local park: Whether it is with a friend or your pet, enjoy what your town/county/state has to offer you. Find a park and take your dog to meet other dogs/dog parents, go on a hike, let the kids at the playground pet your pup, sit at a picnic bench and have a meal or a hydrating drink!
Enjoy local trails: Find your local rail trails on their website! Rail trails are amazing when you want to take your pup for a walk. During the summer, the risk of ticks is at their height and you need to be careful with taking your pups outside. Rail trails are good because they are paved/dirt trails that are very wide and well maintained.
Take a road trip.  Hop in the car and take a small road trip. Visit a place you haven’t been to for a long time or ever, go on adventures!

National Go Fishing Day on June 18th each year encourages us to drop a line – in the nearest stream, pond, lake, or river. Taking a break from our daily routine to bait a hook and catch some fish can be a relaxing endeavor. 
In addition to providing food, fishing is a recreational pastime for many. Recreational fishing includes conventions, rules, licensing restrictions, and laws that limit the way in which fish may be caught. A rod, reel, line, and hooks with any one of the different forms of bait or lures, are the most common form of recreational fishing.

On National Go Fishing Day, cast your cares aside as you head on down to the old fishing hole.

A little over 5 years ago community members from Headwaters Charitable Trust, Local’Motion, Leadership Elk County and Grace Episcopal Church came together to discuss implementing community gardens around Elk County.
A few months later on May 20th 2016, a community garden was planted at the Grace Episcopal Church in Ridgeway. This was an amazing example on how a community can come together and really do something amazing.

Today marks the 16th annual Endangered Species Day, which is used to both learn about and take action towards helping protect endangered species around the world. Several species of wildlife have experienced drastic reductions to their populations due to a variety of reasons, including human exploitation, habitat fragmentation/destruction, the introduction of invasive species, and climate change among others. One of the most important pieces of legislation regarding this subject has been the Endangered Species Act of 1973, which obligates federal and state governments to protect species threatened with extinction. One example from Pennsylvania is the Indiana bat, who’s numbers drastically declined with the spread of white nose syndrome. Several efforts are currently being conducted by the PA game commission and other agencies to help increase Indiana bat population numbers. So today, take time to learn about endangered species and what is being done AND what you can do to help conserve them!
