George Skladany Receives Year of the Bird Plaque from Newtown

On November 28, 2018, Newtown Democrats Chair George Skladany received from the Newtown Township Board of Supervisors (BOS) a plaque commemorating 2018 as the hundredth anniversary of the signing of the Federal Migratory Bird Treaty Act. This Act protected migratory birds for many decades.

The Township also passed the “Year of the Bird” Proclamation and urged all citizens to take due note of the observance and to support the spirit of this proclamation for years to come.

In the following video clip from the BOS meeting, Skladany explains the importance of protecting migratory birds before receiving the plaque.
