Four Corners Natural Area Meeting

For years North Central Pennsylvania has been the environmental haven for generations of sportsmen, outdoor enthusiasts, and tourists that come here for our beautiful forests and streams, quiet communities and solitude.  The Pine Creek Gorge, the most well known area to locals and visitors, best exemplifies our region’s endless natural beauty and offers boundless opportunities for a person to get ‘lost in the wild’.  In addition, the greater region around the four counties of Tioga, Lycoming, Clinton and Potter from the Gorge to the Hammersley Wild Area contains some of the best examples of wild-lands in the Commonwealth.

This area is in danger of being significantly degraded by gas leases and drilling!

The ‘four corners’ region has emerged as a potential area for designation as a High Conservation Value Forest (HCVF) for protection from such impacts under the larger DCNR umbrella.  The area includes Slate Run, Cedar Run, Kettle Creek, and the headwaters of Young Woman’s Creek. There are designated Wild and Natural Areas, Exceptional Value Streams and a number of endangered and threatened species that call this area home.

Please come to the Gmeiner Arts Center, 134 Main Street, Wellsboro, Pa on September 19th at 7:30 pm for a presentation by Jim Weaver of the Tioga County Planning Commission, the Pine Creek Watershed Council, and the Pine Creek Headwaters Protection Group on the official designation of the Four Corners Natural Area located in the corners of Tioga, Lycoming, Clinton, and Potter Counties. Learn how we, as citizens who cherish this region, can become better informed and involved in holding on to this wild area and keeping it protected for us and our children.
