Parks & Forests Care & Maintenance

In 2017, with the support of the Richard King Mellon Foundation, PPFF undertook a comprehensive study of the maintenance needs in our state parks and forests. The resulting report (The Legacy of Pennsylvania’s State Parks and Forests: The Future Is In Our Hands) is an in-depth look at these ongoing and urgent needs.

Our parks and forests are economic engines, vacation destinations, and sources of health and well-being for all Pennsylvanians. Find out more:
