Panther Hollow Watershed Meeting/Hike, June 30

Published by at 7:02 am under Books & Events,Schenley Park

Do you think the pond at Schenley Park is disgusting?  You're not the only one.

The Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy is developing a restoration plan for the Panther Hollow watershed which will ultimately -- and permanently -- improve the pond.   They're holding three community meetings to discuss the plans.  The first meeting was May 23rd.  The next one is a hike in the hollow this Thursday June 30 from 6:00-8:00pm.  Meet at the Schenley Park Visitors Center.

    Last night my dog’s barking woke me to noise in the woodsy patch behind our house There was an “animal in distress” sound. A terrible, soft, pathetic whimpering. It went on for 20 min. I guessed it might be the prey of an owl. But wouldn’t an owl kill immediately? I also heard branches and leaves being disturbed about every 3-5 min. , at first low to the ground then, up higher in the trees and that sound was traveling , moving through the woods. My dog (on leash) and I explored this morning where we could because there is a sheer drop off in that part of the woods, but no clues to be seen. Any wisdom on this?

    I have no idea. The sounds would have unnerved me… though they might have been begging young raccoons that were not in trouble… But then again…

    I’m glad that this is being done, that pond has plenty of potential, but I’ve seen sewage waste ponds that were nicer to look at. If I still lived in Oakland I would definitely be involved with this.
