Letter to the Editor: A Labor Day Call to Action to Protect PA’s Natural Heritages

Monday, September 3, 2018 @ 12:09 AM

Posted by exploreClarion

Labor Day is a special weekend for families, where many Pennsylvanians will spend time outside visiting the state’s scenic landscapes and national parks.

What many Pennsylvanians may not realize is many of these important natural heritages have been preserved through a program called the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF), including places like Valley Forge, Gettysburg, and Flight 93 Memorial.

Locally, it’s helped fund more than $469,951.00 in protection and maintenance of Cook Forest State Park, Paul Weaver Community Park, and Clarion County Park.

Unfortunately, without Congressional action this fall, LWCF will expire and put many of the greatest places here and across the country at risk.

For decades, LWCF has protected the places we love and cherish. Now we must protect LWCF.

I hope that concerned citizens will call and email their Senators Casey and Toomey, and Congressman Thompson, and ask them to reauthorize LWCF this fall.

Sincerely,

Jessica Bellwoar, Conservation Associate
