​​        Douglas Stahlman’s Scripture Rocks Film

Our most recent film sponsored by the JCHC on the life of Douglas Stahlman of SRHP fame was funded in part by PA Partners in the Arts (PPA) Project Stream, and administered by the Elk County Council of the Arts (ECOTTA), is nearing completion. The documentary was written and produced by Edward Frank is in the final stages of editing and review, and will be ready for presentation at the Annual Membership Dinner.

Our goal for this project is a

presentation on PBS and

have the DVD for sale in the

JCHC Gift Shop along. 



Situated next to the pond our newest project at the Scripture Rocks Heritage Park is to crate an ADA Accessible Native Plant and Wildlife Habitat project. 

Phase I was completed in early

summer by JCHC, CSU interns and

kids from the AmeriCorps Program.  It included a accessible trail from the parking lot, selection and planting

of native wetland plants around the

pond.  The plants are all growing

well and should bloom next spring, a

attracting beneficial pollinators.

We have also recently received a grant from the Jefferson County Hotel Tax committee for a informational kiosk, two interpretive panels and plant identification signage.

The finished project provide an area where individuals not physically able to hike into the park can relax and learn from our interpretive panels and information data sheets about plant and wildlife ecology help conduct a bird count/identification and enjoy this interesting area.  It will also be the center of numerous upcoming educational programs for both young and old as part of our citizen science programming. .

Sponsorship Opportunity: 

We are still searching for funds for an ADA outdoor table and ADA bench. We have located an area business who can build both of these for us at a cost of $1,000 dollars.

There is also a need to provide a hard surface (tar and chipping) for easy wheelchair access to the trail head, restrooms and ADA area.
