Cuts to Conservation Funding in PA Threaten Recreation

Conservation funding is in trouble in Pennsylvania, where the Governor’s proposed budget contains draconian cuts to the programs that protect our public lands. These include a 70% cut to the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and the complete and permanent elimination of funding for the conservation, park, and recreation programs under the Keystone Fund. Besides being bad for recreation, the cuts are a terrible idea for Pennsylvania’s economy, which gets twelve dollars in return for every dollar invested in our park system. 

The House has yet to pass their version of the budget and they need to hear from you! To find your state representative click here. To read more about the proposed cuts visit.
