3 Public Meetings In October For Comments On PA Outdoor Recreation Plan

Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Secretary Ellen Ferretti Tuesday announced the department will hold three public meetings across the state to collect comments on a draft of Pennsylvania’s five-year Outdoor Recreation Plan which guides outdoor recreation programs, policies and projects.
“Our outdoor recreation plan analyzes the recreation needs of Pennsylvanians, including challenges, opportunities and trends,” Ferretti said.  “It also outlines a strategy to address Pennsylvania’s outdoor recreation future with 20 recommendations and more than 80 action items. We’d like to know from participants if we’re on the right track.”
The following are the dates and locations for the public meetings:
-- October 7, 5 to 7:30 p.m.: hosted by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society  at its headquarters, 100 North 20th Street, first floor town hall, Philadelphia. Register by calling 215-988-1698.
