Pennsylvania and its many partners will develop an outstanding network of greenways across the Commonwealth, creating an asset highly valued by Pennsylvanians and enhancing the quality of life for all.

Land Conservation

Over a century ago conservation leaders envisioned a future for Pennsylvania that was defined by its natural beauty and had the foresight to set aside land for public enjoyment. How leaders today conserve and sustain the Commonwealth’s natural resources and protect the landscape, is the most important legacy we can pass on to future generations. What we do today will determine the future prosperity and quality of life for the citizens of tomorrow.


Pennsylvania Outdoor Recreation Plan

The Pennsylvania Outdoor Recreation Plan is prepared periodically by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to provide statewide policy direction and to fulfill the agency's recreation and conservation mandate.
