HARRISBURG, Pa. (Sept. 13) – The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) has scheduled a public workgroup meeting on Monday, Sept. 23. This meeting is anticipated to set the course for the future, long-term management of Cumberland County’s Big Spring Creek.
The meeting will be held from 6-8 p.m. in the Large Group Room at the Big Spring High School, located at 100 Mount Rock Road, Newville, PA 17241. Guests should enter the facility through the auditorium entrance.

The purpose of this facilitated workgroup meeting is to gather information from the public as it pertains to the future fisheries management and habitat management of Big Spring Creek. 
“The PFBC desires to manage Big Spring Creek in a way that first and foremost protects the resource, but does so while striving to meet the expectations of those who fish her waters,” said Dave Miko, Chief of the PFBC Division of Fisheries Management. “Participants should expect a brief overview of the current conditions of the fish populations and habitat improvement project, followed by facilitated small group sessions designed to gather input from everyone participating in the meeting.”

In order to make the best use of the limited time, guests are strongly encouraged to preregister for the meeting by calling 717.705.7832 or emailing mridgway@pa.gov with the subject line: Big Spring Meeting.
