Charleroi Woman Claims Conservation Honor

Frye, Bob, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

A Charleroi woman earned a national conservation honor.

Kathy Davis, who also happens to be seeking Roxane Palone's soon- to-be-open seat on the Pennsylvania Game Commission board, was honored as one of Field & Stream's Heroes of Conservation for June.

Since leaving the service, the retired disabled veteran has volunteered with the Department of Environmental Protection, monitoring water quality in local streams and teaching others to do the same. She also volunteers with the Game and Fish and Boat commissions and works to introduce youths and senior citizens to the outdoors.

Being named a Hero of Conservation earned Davis at least a $1,000 award and a trip to New York. Six of the magazine's 30 heroes for 2008 will make the trip, and one will win a Toyota Tundra and $5,000.

Davis was nominated for the award by a Department of Environmental Protection employee.

"It was a big honor," Davis said. "It was a big thrill."

Pymatuning project

Pymatuning Lake's fisheries got a little help last week.

On Wednesday, the Ohio Division of Wildlife and Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission collaborated on a habitat introduction project there. It once again was the largest habitat project of the year for each agency.

Volunteers from the Pymatuning Lake Association, North Shore Boat Club and Allegheny College helped place wooden cribs east of Tuttle Point on the north end of the lake and 40 tons of rock reefs just north of Bay 41.
