2015 was an exciting year for the Laurel Highlands Conservation Coalition, highlighted by the opening of the $7 million Ohiopyle Visitor Center in July (photo).
Composed of DCNR, other state agencies, the PA Environmental Council and other non-profits, businesses, and the larger Laurel Highlands community, the Coalition works to advance trail development, bring communities together, and much more.
