Kidder Township Environmental Advisory Committee recently met with members of the DCNR to discuss the establishment of designated hiking and biking trails throughout the township.

The committee discussed the meeting when it met Wednesday evening.

There are a number of existing trails in Hickory Run State Park which the EAC would like to incorporate into the Kidder Township trail system. The DCNR representatives directed the EAC to write a proposal which details which of the existing trails located in Hickory Run State Park that it wishes to include in the plan.

In other business, the EAC continues to investigate the implementation of a fresh water mussel recovery program for Lake Harmony. Members are currently looking into procuring grants to help finance the effort.

EAC member Len Tiscio has been seeking assistance for the updated Landmark Inventory. Tiscio is in contact with Professor Mark Leffler Jr. of King's College. The plan is to have Leffler contact different disciplines throughout the college to see what expertise they can bring to the project.

The EAC is also working on the establishment of a designated bike lane, which would link the existing Tobyhanna bike lane through Blakeslee, Kidder Township and into White Haven.
