CCEP President Mike Flanagan welcomed everyone to the event, followed by Commissioner and museum board member Angela Harding, who encouraged everyone to tour the facility and learn about such a crucial part of the area’s history.

After the tours were complete, those in attendance were able to enjoy delicious food and conversation at the Castanea Fire Company Picnic Grounds and watch as planes jetted off from the runway.

Clinton County Conservation District: Horse manure in the news

LAMAR, PA – Own a horse? Did you know that Pennsylvania law requires you to have a Manure Management Plan?. That’s right. Anyone that has livestock, even one horse, is required by the State to have a written Manure Management Plan. The reason for this is because one mature horse can produce up to 61 pounds of manure each day. That’s eleven tons a year. The good news is, you do not need to be a Certified Nutrient Management Planner to write a manure plan for your backyard horse and pasture and the Clinton County Conservation District is happy to assist you with the effort.
