Current Project Updates

Project Healing Waters

  • Keeping tying gear available to the Vets:  The hospital reps that I met with are going to seek approval to have about four tying kits, tools and materials available for the Vets to use at their leisure.  Currently, CVAMC utilizes a building for “Therapy Clinics” which includes a wood working shop and leather working shop.
  • On site storage area for our equipment and supplies:  As of next meeting, we will be able to keep our gear at CVAMC.
  • Informal Wednesday tying nights :  Some of our volunteers have expressed an interest in having informal tying sessions with the Vets on our off Wednesday nights.

Wilson Farm Park

Demonstration rain gardens have been planted in Wilson Farm Park in Tredyffrin Township. Chapter members have partnered with Green Valleys Association and Pennsylvania Environmental Council to assemble a Growing Greener Grant Application for modifying retention basins in the Valley Creek Watershed. Chapter members are also involved with the Chester County Conservation Districts’ Valley Creek Trustee Council grant also targeting detention basins in the Valley Creek watershed.

Keeper of the Stream

The Keeper of the Stream program for Valley Creek continues to seek permission for stream access from landowners.
