New Pig Corporation is a corporate sponsor of the LJRA and participates in our annual clean up. New Pig awarded the LJRA a Pig Difference grant in 2015 to aid in our efforts to preserve and protect the Little Juniata River. They produced a nice video describing the clean up that can be viewed here: http://www.pigdifference.org/ljra

Jim Eckenrode from the Blair County Conservation District presented the plans for monitoring important stream parameters such as temperature, turbidity, pH and conductivity along the upper J at the February meeting held Thursday the 11th. The data will be important for monitoring the health of the river and making a case for HQCW designation in the upper J. During the winter months the meetings of the LJRA will be held the second Thursday of the month at 7PM.
