December’s template, created by PPFF’s volunteer artist Melodie Schwarz-Higgins, is available for download on the Pennsylvania Parks and Forests Foundation’s (PPFF) website:

“The beautiful photo by Scott Morgan of Lyman Run State Park was the inspiration and just gave me the feeling of a perfect, peaceful winter scene – like the one you might see on a holiday card,” Melodie said.
