Help us celebrate Pennsylvania’s public lands!

Healthy Lands Week is a statewide initiative to strengthen volunteer activities, engage visitors, and raise awareness of stewardship of cultural and natural resources. Through volunteer events, educational programs, recreational programs, volunteer recognition, and other initiatives, it is an annual “rallying cry” for public engagement in the places and landscapes that make Pennsylvania home. This year’s impactful event runs from National Public Lands Day on September 28 through A Walk in Penn’s Woods Day on October 6. Healthy Lands Week also supports Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful’s Pick Up Pennsylvania initiative.

Strategically, I think it’s important we all chip in to make parks and rec bigger and better across the state. Personally, I think there are a ton of really cool and creative people that volunteer, and I like interacting and being a part of that experience.
