Environmental Issues Forum
The next Environmental Issues Forum will be held on March 14 at Noon and feature a presentation by the State Association of Pennsylvania’s Heritage Areas.
Heritage Areas are designated geographic regions of the Commonwealth that have a unifying cultural or historical theme. A recent study conducted by the Center for Rural Pennsylvania found that Heritage Areas contribute nearly $2 billion annually to the state's economy.
A representative from HeritagePA will provide an overview of the program, the benefit they provide to the community, as well as future opportunities and challenges.
The Forum will be held in Room 8E-A in the East Wing of the Capitol.
