Thanks to everyone who came out for a spectacular day at Captina Creekin Festival! The music was sweet, the weather was pitch perfect, and the crowd couldn't be beat. A special thank you to our volunteers who sweated over the grill, directed parking, sold raffle tickets, set up and took down canopies and signs, and so much more. Also to our sponsors: Captina Preserve, Belmont County Tourism, Raven Rocks, and South Central Power. See you next year!
Join us for the third talk of our Captina Science Pub- a series of lectures from scientists and researchers on topics of interest to us all! This talk comes to us from hydrologist Sarah Kreitzer. Sarah travels the country conducting trainings and educational sessions for the U.S. Department of the Interior. She will discuss different methods of underground mining and their impacts to surface and groundwater. Come early (6pm) to buy dinner in the meeting room, or join us at 7pm for the talk.

In addition to our work preserving high quality natural areas, Captina Conservancy also partners with other agencies on restoring streams and wetlands impacted by human activity. Last week we scouted out a restoration site in Cat Run watershed (a tributary to Captina Creek), which will include fencing out livestock and restoring a natural stream channel.
