Grants awarded

Eight projects in Warren County schools have received financial boosts from the Northern Allegheny Outdoor Women’s Association. The group sponsors Women’s Outdoor Workshops (WOW!), The Sasquatch Run, and The Turkey Trot. Funds raised are donated to educational programs related to conservation, recreation, and other outdoor activities. Pictured are Matthew Cathcart, Hanna Hoffman, and Ellie Strausser, students in John Fedak’s science class at the Learning Enrichment Center. Fedak encourages “citizen science” and the grant will be used to fund a trout-raising project. The fingerlings are being raised at the LEC and will be released into Hatch Run.
