Conservation agencies join in
preservation effort
THE Pennsylvania Game Commission
and Pennsylvania Fish and Boat
Commission have announced completion of a land-transfer agreement with
Hanson Aggregates BMC Inc. that
secures the long-term preservation of
Cogley Island, a 10-acre property in the
Allegheny River in Armstrong County.
Under the agreement, Hanson
transferred the property to the Game
Commission as mitigation for potential environmental impacts related
to commercial gravel dredging in the
Dashields Pool, Montgomery Pool
and New Cumberland Pool of the
Ohio River. A fish survey conducted
by Hanson found that the proposed
project would potentially impact the
habitat of two state-threatened fish
species.
"Our foremost goal is always to
protect an area's habitat and to work
with companies to find solutions
that reduce or offset environmental
impacts of a project," said Fish and
Boat Commission Executive Director John Arway. "Acquiring Cogley
Island and permanently preserving its
ecosystem was the best option to offset
the potential impact of Hanson's gravel
dredging project. The island has excellent conservation value, including the
necessary shallow water and shoreline
that supports habitat for rare and listed
fish and mussel species."
The transfer of the 10-acre island to
the Game Commission came at no cost
to the commission, and was approved
unanimously in June by the Board of
Game Commissioners.
Cogley Island is expected to provide

hunting opportunity, particularly to
waterfowl hunters, and some trapping
opportunities might also develop from
the acquisition.
The island, portions of which
are seasonally inundated, represents
critical habitat for nesting birds and
wildlife. It is forested with sycamore,
silver maple, willow and cottonwood,
and has a thick understory.
The property is located in Pool 6 of
the Allegheny River in Manor TWP.,
Armstrong County. It is adjacent to
Ford City and is approximately 2 miles
away from State Game Lands 247.
"We're always looking to preserve
wildlife habitat for future generations,
and happy to add choices for those
seeking good, public-access hunting spots," said Game Commission
Executive Director R. Matthew Hough.
"Cogley Island certainly would seem to
fit the bill. Let me extend thanks to the
many partners behind this effort. On
behalf of Pennsylvania's hunters, the
agency thanks you."
Ron Kurpiel, vice president and
general manager of Hanson Aggregates
BMC, said the company was proud to
do its part to create that opportunity.
"At Hanson Aggregates, environmental sustainability is an integral
part of our business strategy. We strive
to operate and grow in a socially and
ecologically responsible manner, while
minimizing the impact of our business
on the environment," Kurpiel said.
"The transfer of the Cogley Island
property as a means to help preserve
its ecosystem clearly demonstrates this
commitment."
