BWO on the upper J

This little beauty landed on me this weekend on the upper J where Sandy Run enters near Pinecroft.  Quite a few were in the air. Signs that the upper J is rebounding?  Join our efforts to improve the water quality of the upper J and it’s hatches. Join the LJRA and monitor the website for volunteer opportunities.
