What to Remember This Weekend

Memorial Day (ever hear someone call it Decoration Day?) is a time meant for honoring and mourning the military personnel who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.

For almost all of us, this pandemic is uncharted territory. It is a time of uncertainty, anger, frustration and loss. Putting all that aside is difficult, especially considering how often we hear on the news and in social media the term COVID-19 and what it has done and is resulting in. It is hard for me to do too.

Many people are facing significant challenges right now, some of which will be very difficult to recover from. I challenge all of us to spend some portion of this weekend remembering our war dead and the sacrifices they made, so we may enjoy the FREEDOM WE HAVE AND WILL NEVER LOSE!

Have a good weekend! It is an honor and privilege to serve as your voice in the General Assembly.

With declining populations and a contracted range, northern goshawks have become rarer sights in Pennsylvania. But those who are lucky enough to catch a glimpse of this magnificent forest raptor, or who know where they nest, are asked to report their observations as part of a collaborative project involving the Pennsylvania Game Commission.

The northern goshawk (Accipiter gentilis) is a large raptor nesting in mature, mixed forests across northern Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvania Wildlife Action Plan identifies the goshawk as a Species of Greatest Conservation Need – wildlife with low or declining populations that are in need of conservation action – and highlights the need for information on the abundance and distribution of breeding goshawks across the state.

Since 2017, the Pennsylvania Goshawk Project (run by a subcommittee of the Ornithological Technical Committee of the Pennsylvania Biological Survey in collaboration with the Pennsylvania Game Commission) has collected reports of goshawk sightings in the state.

The Pennsylvania Goshawk Project continues to seek information related to sightings. Any goshawk observations should be sent to Reports are confidential to protect the birds.

Your assistance with finding goshawk territories and nests helps with our research and conservation efforts to protect this species and its habitat.

For more information about the Pennsylvania Goshawk Project, visit You can find images and audio files to aid identification as well as forms, instructions, and contact information.

4-h Virtual Camp

We can’t imagine a summer without 4-H Camp and YOU so join us for a completely new and virtual camping experience in June during our regular camp week of June 23-25. It is your chance to have a little bit of 4-H Camp fun this summer.

We will still have traditional camp activities such as get acquainted games, workshops, candlelight and campfire- just a little different. Sessions will be led by camp counselors and 4-H staff live or recorded if you cannot join us live. The week’s activities will culminate with a Thursday night backyard campfire. Gather your family and join us for songs, s’mores and friends.

You do not want to miss this unique virtual camping experience. It is as close to the real 4-H camp as you can get this summer. Space is limited, so register early. You do not need to be in 4-H to join this experience.

Register here by June 12

Each Camp in a Box will include:
• Camp crafts and instructions
• Camp games
• Camp songs
• Flash drive with video workshop instructions
• Snacks

We have limited the amount of screen time each day to 30 minutes for get acquainted activities so campers can see their friends from past years and met new friends who may be joining camp for the first time. The one-hour workshop time is optional, video instructions will be included in the box.

Each day campers will login to Northwinds Camp- participate in a welcome activity, flag raising and get acquainted activities led by counselors. Campers will be divided into traditional groups just like at regular camp, so they have smaller groups to work with for games and get the opportunity to reconnect or make new friends.

Workshop time is optional, but we would love to have you join us for the hands-on workshop. Counselors and staff will demonstrate the activity and campers can follow right along to complete the activity or craft, all or most of the materials will be included in the camp box.

We will have a camp Facebook page where families can share photos of campers working on the activity and showing the final product. We hope family members will join in the fun as well and extend the learning.
