CWA is the steward of 2000+ acres of watershed that surround the Octoraro Reservoir. This includes 100 acres that is set aside with the PA Game Commission to allow for public turkey hunting. This land is home to many animals, and we wanted to bring some of that wildlife to you! You will see deer, raccoons, lots of birds, even cats on our camera installation! Our reservoir is a great birding location to see herons, bald eagles, loons, egrets plus the spring and fall migration of shore birds.
