This video From the Field is a submission from A Life with Nature’s Charlie Cropp featuring a large herd of Bulls from Pottersdale, Pennsylvania. It just so happened to work out that this was taken on the New Garden Access Project land the RMEF carried out in 1998.
New Garden Access Project
Consisting of a reclaimed riparian landscape of lush grasslands, steep forested hillsides, and more than three miles of roadless Susquehanna River frontage, the 4,042-acre New Garden property provides habitat for elk, whitetail deer, black bears, wild turkeys, raptors, songbirds, and many small mammals. The Elk Foundation and the Northcentral Pennsylvania Conservancy helped protect this diverse habitat, which lies near existing public lands. The New Garden property plays an integral part in the Pennsylvania Game Commission’s ongoing elk range expansion project as well as provide public multi-recreational opportunities and river access.
