The PA Parks and Forests Foundation is launching a new program for volunteers-- Stewards of Penn’s Woods-- to assist with cleanup and beautification at trailheads, boat launches, islands, vistas and other interesting sites in Pennsylvania’s state forests.
The program is funded by Exelon.
Anyone, from individuals to businesses, can get involved in being a steward of our natural resources. In exchange for a minimum one-year commitment (at least four visits) to steward a particular location, stewards will receive a t-shirt, gloves, bags and other necessary items to steward their special area.
“The Stewards of Penn’s Woods program provides an opportunity for people to take an active role in caring for their public lands,” said Marci Mowery, President of the Pennsylvania Parks and Forests Foundation. “It’s a way to ensure that the legacy of conservation that created our natural places are passed to the next generation.”
