In 1999, a handful of visionary leaders, believing that each generation is responsible for leaving a legacy of conservation, came together with the goal of giving people a positive way to contribute to the conservation of our publicly owned lands. And so the Pennsylvania Parks & Forests Foundation was born.
PPFF is the only foundation in Pennsylvania organized solely to support state parks and forests. Establishing friends groups, improving access and visitor experience, enhancing habitat and engaging people in outdoor recreation, education and volunteerism are just a few of the ways your gift will help us continue to build a culture of stewardship for our public lands.
Our members share a commitment to conserving, protecting, and enhancing the natural and recreational areas of the Commonwealth. If that’s you or your business join us today!Join Renew

Your special affinity for a specific park or forest means that a PPFF chapter friends group is the perfect outlet for your creative energy. Friends are people like you who volunteer their time, services and support to our state parks and forests. Chapters form for a variety of reasons but all understand the value of their state park or forest and share a common goal to make that park or forest the best in the commonwealth.
Pennsylvania’s Conservation Heritage
In 2009, representatives of some of Pennsylvania’s prominent historical and environmental organizations came together to ask one very important question: Where will we find our future conservation leaders? Answering that question began with a look back at the original leaders, events, and places that shaped the Commonwealth. Learn more at the Pennsylvania Conservation Heritage website.
