Science World’s Eyes On Local ‘BioBlitz’

Science World’s Eyes On Local ‘BioBlitz’

May 17th, 2013
hellbenderSinnemahoning State Park in Cameron and Potter counties will be abuzz with activity on Monday and Tuesday (May 20-21) as approximately 30 scientists – many of them known worldwide – convene to share their knowledge with students from several area schools. Sinnemahoning BioBlitz will be much more than an outdoor classroom. Species that are discovered and analyzed and other data that are collected will be logged as part of ongoing research being conducted by, among others, the National Geographic Society. Organizers hope to raise awareness of natural resources and biological diversity, promote environmental stewardship, and perhaps persuade some of the students of today to become the conscientious scientists of tomorrow.

Students will collaborate with experts to identify as many kinds of organisms as possible. One of the more elusive creatures they’ll be out to find is an eastern hellbender (above). Researchers are excited about the variety of habitats at the park, including the East Fork of Sinnemahoning Creek, some Exceptional Value and Class A tributaries, an impoundment, vernal pools, ponds, swamps, marshes, grassy fields, woodlands and more.

The public is welcome to observe. BioBlitz kicks off at 9 am Monday in the park’s Wildlife Center and concludes at about 2 pm Tuesday. Scientists and naturalists are coming from museums, universities, state agencies, and conservation groups to support the project. Many will camp at the park and some will be on duty through the night to track nocturnal species. Click here for the Sinnemahoning BioBlitz website to learn more.

"Bioblitz" at Sinnemahoning State Park, May 20-21

"Bioblitz" Planned at Sinnemahoning State Park, May 20-21

HARRISBURG, Pa., May 17, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Scientists, naturalists and volunteers from across the state will gather May 20-21 at Sinnemahoning State Park, Cameron County, in an extensive effort to document the park's wide variety of life forms. 

The goal of the event is to identify as many plants and animals as possible in day and night field exercises, popularly known within the scientific community as a "bioblitz." 
"It's fitting to host this event in a park that's home to a new, state-of-the-art Wildlife Center," Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) Secretary Richard Allan said. "When the final tallies are in from this 'bioblitz,' we will be able to make future resource management decisions based on scientific fact."
The research is being gathered in cooperation with a wide variety of regional governmental, educational and commercial entities. Biologists and naturalists will be finding and identifying mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians, aquatic and terrestrial insects, fungi, mosses and many other species.
"Bioblitz findings will supply us with an invaluable snapshot of the biological wealth found in this park's 142-acre lake and its more than 1,900 acres," Allan said. "We are inviting the general public, private citizens, teachers, local high school students and university members to observe, interact and participate in sampling activities."
"We are hoping to learn as much as possible about the biological diversity of the area so that it can be properly conserved and managed, but this 'bioblitz' will offer much more," Allan said. "Beyond establishing baseline information, the event will give participants a chance to join biologists in the field; participate in bona fide research; and learn from experts about biological inventorying and the importance of biodiversity."
Rain or shine, activities will begin at the park's Wildlife Center at 8 a.m. Monday, May 20, and close at 2 p.m. Tuesday, May 21. Participation is free, but pre-registration is requested.
Sponsors include: Dominion Foundation, Potter County and Cameron County boards of commissioners, Potter County and Cameron County conservation districts, League of Women Voters, and the Austin Dam Memorial Association. 
This is the third event of its kind sponsored by DCNR. DCNR's first "bioblitz" was held in 2004, when almost 200 scientists, volunteers and onlookers combed fields and forests of then-newly acquired Erie Bluffs State Park along Lake Erie in Erie County. Kings Gap Environmental Education Center hosted a similar gathering in June 2012 on its 2,530 acres in Cumberland County.
A focal point of the PA Wilds region surrounded by Elk State Forest, Sinnemahoning is on the First Fork of the Sinnemahoning Creek and offers picturesque views of surrounding mountains and deep valleys. It is home to abundant wildlife, including nesting bald eagles, elk, and many birds and butterflies, many of which can be viewed from the Wildlife Center.

Lucille Hegele Lanphere, 100, of Shinglehouse, PA

Lucille Hegele Lanphere
Lucille Hegele Lanphere 
“retired educator”

Lucille Hegele Lanphere, 100, of Shinglehouse, PA, passed away Thursday, May 16, 2013 in the Bradford Ecumenical Home, Bradford, after a short illness.

Born May 2, 1913 on the family farm in Mansfield, she was a daughter of Paul A. and Myra B. Goodall Hegele. On July 23, 1940 in Clarksville, Virginia, she married Winfield E. Lanphere, who passed away on June 19, 1985.

Mrs. Lanphere was a graduate of Mansfield High School and a graduate of Mansfield Teachers College (now Mansfield University) with a double education major. She received a Masters equivalent in education from Duke University. She did graduate work at Penn State University, St. Bonaventure University, SUNY at Geneseo, and Elmira College.

Mrs. Lanphere retired in June of 1976 after 30 years of teaching at Oswayo Valley High School in Shinglehouse. During her years in the Shinglehouse school system, she was the school librarian and later after earning a French degree, she became the French teacher. Many students recall the question “Parlez-vous francais?” Hopefully many also remember the correct response, especially those who she took abroad. In 1969, she received the Teacher of the Year award. She also founded the National Honor Society chapter for the Oswayo Valley Junior/Senior High School, which gave her great satisfaction. A life-long learner herself, Mrs. Lanphere led others into believing that learning is something we all need to be doing throughout our lives. The world is ever-changing and our challenge is to meet it head on with chins up and eyes open.

Mrs. Lanphere was a member of Kappa Delta Pi National Honorary Education Society and a member of Delta Kappa Gamma International Honor Society for Women Teachers. Mrs. Lanphere was a life member of the Pennsylvania State Education Association and a life member of the Pennsylvania Association of School Retirees. She was also a member of the Potter-Tioga County School Retirees Association. She was a former member of the Shinglehouse Board of School Directors where she served as treasurer.

She was a member of the Oswayo Valley Historical Society in Shinglehouse and a member of the former Shinglehouse/Oswayo Valley Lions Club.

She was an avid reader and journal writer and also enjoyed gardening. Mrs. Lanphere enjoyed wintering in Florida with her husband and family for many years.

Surviving are three daughters, Joanne E. Aloi of Olean, NY, Janice A. (Stephen) Hancharick of Raleigh, NC, and Janette L. (Barry) Church of Shinglehouse; six grandchildren, Christopher C. Aloi, Kari L. (David) Drake, Michelle L. George, Jeffrey W. (Renee`) Hancharick, Jason F. (Lori) Putt, and Jaime L. (Drew) Horman; ten great-grandchildren; two great-great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents and husband, Mrs. Lanphere was predeceased by a sister, Pauline Dewitt, who died on September 12, 1997.

Friends may call on Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. at the Virgil L. Howard Funeral, 118 South Union Street, Shinglehouse, PA. Burial will be in Maple Grove Cemetery, Shinglehouse.

A celebration of Mrs. Lanphere’s life will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, June 30, 2013 in the First Baptist Church, Shinglehouse, with the Rev. Russell J. Horning, pastor and the Rev. Darell D. Harris of Oswayo, officiating.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Oswayo Valley Memorial Library, PO Box 188, Shinglehouse, PA 16748; the Oswayo Valley Historical Society, PO Box 699, Shinglehouse, PA 16748; or to a charity of the donor’s choice.

State Police to Offer Child Safety Seat Checkpoints Statewide as Part of Campaign to Save Lives on Roadways

State Police to Offer Child Safety Seat Checkpoints Statewide as Part of Campaign to Save Lives on Roadways

Harrisburg – The Pennsylvania State Police will offer free child safety seat inspections statewide in conjunction with the national Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s “Click It or Ticket” campaign from May 20 to June 2.

“Traffic crashes are the leading cause of death and injury for children 15 and younger, and many of those tragedies occur because the child passenger is not properly restrained,” State Police Commissioner Frank Noonan said. “Ensuring the safety of our most precious cargo must be our first priority every time we get behind the wheel.”

Each of the department’s troops will conduct at least one safety seat check during the week, Noonan said. The seat checks are designed to teach parents the proper installation and use of child safety seats.

“We know that child passenger safety seats save lives, but only when they are installed and used properly,” Noonan said. “Using these seats properly is an absolute must for everyone traveling with children.”

Pennsylvania law requires that children under the age of 4 ride in a federally-approved car seat that is appropriate for the child's age, height and weight. Children ages 4 through 7 must use a booster seat if they are no longer in a car seat. Children who weigh more than 80 pounds or who are of a height of 4 feet 9 inches or taller may be fastened in the vehicle’s safety seat belt system without the use of a child booster seat.

The state’s seat belt law mandates that children ages 8 to 17 must use a seat belt, and violating this law is a primary offense. It is a secondary offense for drivers and front-seat passengers age 18 and older to travel unbuckled.

Because of the potential dangers associated with air bag deployment, children ages 12 and under should always ride in a vehicle’s back seat.

The State Police Bureau of Patrol also offered the following tips:

• Read and follow the car seat and vehicle manufacturers’ instructions;

• Use the car’s seat belt to anchor the seat to the car unless you are using a child safety seat with the LATCH system;

• Fill out and return the registration card for your seat so you'll know if it is recalled because of a problem;

• Make sure the seat’s harness fits snugly; and

• Use a tether strap if the seat requires it.
