PEC-TV: PA Trail Networks Featured On Jan. 17 Environmental Focus On PCN

Over 1,700 miles of hiking and biking trails have proven to be an economic boom for the cities and towns across Pennsylvania. Connecting these trails together to create regional trail networks is highlighted in this month’s edition of “Environmental Focus,” the PA Environmental Council’s monthly environmental affairs television program.
The show will air on the Pennsylvania Cable Network (PCN) on January 17 at 4 p.m., and will include featured guest and former Pittsburgh Mayor and State Representative Tom Murphy, now a fellow at the Urban Institute in Washington, D.C. Murphy played a leading role in developing Pittsburgh’s trail networks into what they are today.
Following Murphy’s interview, a roundtable discussion will be led by Tom Sexton of the Rails to Trails Conservancy, Christopher Linn of the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission, and PEC’s Frank Maguire.
Previous editions of “Environmental Focus” have featured topics such as outdoor recreation on Pennsylvania’s waterways, Pennsylvania’s state budget, the DEP Pipeline Infrastructure Taskforce, and the Delaware River Conservation Program with guests such as Department of Environmental Protection Secretary John Quigley, Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Secretary Cindy Adams Dunn, Andrew Johnson of the William Penn Foundation, and more.
