Play is central to a child’s ability to grow into a productive adult. Together, we can ensure kids get the balance of play they need to thrive!
Please the Natural Lands Trust and PECO and show that play matters to you.
Five years ago, Natural Lands Trust launched an exciting new effort to improve access to and support for green spaces in the Southeast region’s urban areas. They began in Philadelphia where they preserved more than 450 acres of open space, so far.
More recently, we broadened the initiative to urbanized communities elsewhere in the region... communities like Pottstown, Coatesville, and Chester.
In Coatesville, the Trust has worked with the City and other partners to craft and help implement a five year action plan for the City’s parks. You can get involved by participating in this exciting project!
