The Armstrong Conservation District regularly assists with programs and events held at The Crooked Creek Environmental Learning Center. The ELC is a multi-use facility originally built and operated by the United States Army Corp of Engineers. The Armstrong County Educational Trust now operates the ELC with guidance from the ELC Steering Committee, of which the Armstrong Conservation District is a member.
The ELC works closely with schools to provide environmental education. The overnight accommodations attract scouts, church groups, and clubs for weekend retreats and workshops. Groups like the Armstrong County Master Gardeners and 4H Homeschoolers use the facilities for meetings and classes. Businesses and are welcome to use the ELC as well for meetings and workforce development. The ELC is available year round to any organized groups or businesses.
