Camp Hill, PA –The Pennsylvania Parks and Forests Foundation (PPFF), is in need of more volunteers for a large scale clean-up of Hammonds Rocks in the Michaux State Forest on April 16, 9am-12pm.
PPFF and the Stewards of Penn’s Woods, in conjunction with the Great American Clean-Up, will be doing litter removal of the areas around Hammonds Rocks, Buzzards Rocks, and Ridge Road. Litter detracts from our sense of enjoyment when visiting a state forest and while visiting these unique geologic formations. Volunteers are needed to help beautify these areas. Those interested can sign up to help at https://paparksandforests.org/event/hammonds-rocks-clean-up/
“We are excited to work with local volunteers to improve this area of forest for all users,” said Marci Mowery, President of the Pennsylvania Parks and Forests Foundation. “We all have a role in making sure our public lands remain assets for generations to come.”
The event is part of the Stewards of Penn’s Woods which connects people to places, to assist with clean-up and beautification at trail heads, boat launches, islands, vistas and other interesting sites in Pennsylvania’s state forests. The program was designed so anyone, from individuals to businesses, can get involved in being a steward of our natural resources.
“The Stewards of Penn’s Woods program provides an opportunity for people to take an active role in caring for their public lands,” said Marci Mowery, President of the Pennsylvania Parks and Forests Foundation. “It’s a way to ensure that the legacy of conservation that created our natural places are passed to the next generation.”
