Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership Urges Support For INCREASED Funding For Environmental Stewardship (Growing Greener) Fund

The Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership is urging hunters and anglers to show their support for clean water and restoring Pennsylvania's rivers and streams by contacting their elected state officials to support increased funding for the Environmental Stewardship (Growing Greener) Fund.
Clean water and quality fish and wildlife habitat are vital to Pennsylvania’s economy. That’s why support is needed for increased funding for the Environmental Stewardship Fund.
According to a recent poll, 4 out of 5 Pennsylvania voters who hunt and fish also support the conservation efforts that the Environmental Stewardship Fund sustains, and it is not hard to see why.
“This study shows that, regardless of political affiliation, sportsmen and women in the Keystone State are spurred to action by clean water issues that affect our hunting and fishing opportunities,” says Derek Eberly, Pennsylvania field representative for the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership. “We’ve always been willing to pay our fair share for conservation, but it’s time to pay a little more.”
Since its inception, the Environmental Stewardship Fund has had a huge impact on our state’s outdoors--
- 1,500+ projects to improve water quality, prevent water pollution, and control flooding
- 600+ miles of streams improved
- 350+ projects to improve drinking water and wastewater facilities
- 6,500+ acres of abandoned mine lands reclaimed
- 270+ acres of brownfields restored
- 106,000+ acres of productive farmland preserved
- 250+ projects to rehabilitate facilities and infrastructure in state parks and forests
