Latest Penn’s Stewards From PA Parks & Forests Foundation Features A Look At 20 Years Of Inspiring Stewardship

The Spring 2019 issue of the Penn’s Stewards newsletter from the PA Parks and Forests Foundation features at look back at the first 20 years of accomplishments of the Foundation and its many local friends.
It was October 1999 when a group of visionary leaders came together with the idea to create an organization dedicated to our state parks and forests.
These leaders knew that, with the assistance of Pennsylvanians who have a deep and abiding connection to those public lands, the parks and forests could survive into the 21st century and beyond.
So they signed the Articles of Incorporation to create the Friends of Pennsylvania’s Parks and Forests (our Ps and Fs were in a different order then) and we—you, Friends groups, and the Foundation—started a journey together, creating opportunities, conserving our natural world, and building a volunteer base.
In a flash, 20 years of logging thousands of volunteer hours, raising millions of dollars, and promoting countless events—in order to make our parks and forests even better—had passed.
