Stewards of Penn’s Woods


Interested in getting involved, but time a constraint? Consider becoming a steward at one of many forest sites across the state. Funded through a grant from Exelon, this program connects people to places to assist with clean-up and beautification at trail heads, boat launches, islands, vistas and other interesting sites.

The program is designed for anyone—from individuals to businesses—to get involved in being a steward of our natural resources. In exchange for a year commitment to steward a particular location, you will receive a t-shirt, gloves, bags and other necessary items to steward your special area. All stewards will be recognized here and in our newsletter.

Check out the full project list and (coming soon) the list of stewards.

Do you – like us – shake your head in confusion at the idea of graffiti-covered rocks and other treasures in our state forests and parks? We’ve located 37 “hot spots” for this damaging practice across the system and we need your help to remove it. Change these Walls of Shame to a Wall of Honor by making your donation to the fight. Every dollar you contribute removes one square foot of graffiti (an estimated 7,000 square feet alone on Michaux State Forest’s Hammonds and Buzzards Rocks).
