Watershed Info.

During our picnic lunch today after our canoe trip, Brian Pilarcik from the Crawford County Conservation District spoke to us about the French Creek Watershed and explained to us why it is so diverse. They monitor the water constantly and work with farmers in the area to minimize any runoff that would enter the stream. He often speaks to groups about the stream and informs them about ways that they can help protect it so that it stays populated with many clean-freshwater species such as the muscles that filter the creek.
