Help us celebrate Pennsylvania’s public lands!

Healthy Lands Week is a statewide initiative to strengthen volunteer activities and raise awareness of stewardship of public lands. Through clean-up and beautification events, invasive species removal and maintenance projects, volunteer recognitions, and other initiatives, it is an annual “rallying cry” for public stewardship of public lands, parks and open spaces in Pennsylvania. This year’s impactful event runs from National Public Lands Day on September 24 through A Walk in Penn’s Woods Day on October 2. Healthy Lands Week also supports Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful’s Pick Up Pennsylvania initiative.

Strategically, I think it’s important we all chip in to make parks and rec bigger and better across the state. Personally, I think there are a ton of really cool and creative people that volunteer, and I like interacting and being a part of that experience.
