Environmental Advisory Council (EAC)

PA State Law provides for the establishment of local Environmental Advisory Councils (EAC) in order to advocate for the protection and stewardship of the environment by advising local officials, commissions and boards as best fits the community’s objectives and goals. EACs work as a liaison between municipal officials and community volunteers.

Our UMBT EAC was established in the year 2000. Since then we have been instrumental in obtaining grants and implementation for the:

  • UMBT Environmental Resource Inventory
  • Recreation, Parks and Open Space Plan
  • Open Space Plan Amendment
  • Martins-Jacoby Watershed Plan
  • Township Ground Water Study

  • Osprey nest platform structures
  • Farmer inventory pamphlet
  • Annual participation at our State Representative’s Senior Fair
  • Educational water resources brochure
  • Cautionary markings on local road drains
  • Hiking trail on the UMBT Eastern Industries property

We meet the 1st Tuesday of the month, 7 P.M. at the Township Building.
