Letort Headwaters Watercress Farm, with Central Pennsylvania Conservancy

October 20, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Within the Cumberland Valley lay some of the world’s most popular fly fishing spring-fed creeks – Letort, Falling Springs, Yellow Breeches, plus more! Thanks to the natural bounty and cultural history of the Cumberland Valley, the Letort Spring Run is perhaps one of the most historic trout streams. Local communities like Carlisle were established here because the Letort Spring Run provided them with what was needed to survive and prosper. Now known almost exclusively for worldclass fly fishing, the communities’ historic reliance on the Letort Spring Run has been largely forgotten. Join us for a walking tour to learn about this unique property’s many layers of value – the layers of historic and cultural, agricultural, ecological, and recreational qualities while also learning more about Central Pennsylvania Conservancy’s work to purchase, restore, and preserve this natural mecca of consistent, cool water that hosts remarkable vegetation, insects, and fish populations.

This location does not have a proper street address. Tour goers should expect to turn onto the lane off South Spring Garden Street. One can see the location on this google map link:
