The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources’ Bureau of Recreation and Conservation grant program application period will open on January 14, 2015 and close on April 16, 2015. In partnership with the Pennsylvania Recreation and Park Society, DCNR is offering free, in-person grant workshops at six locations across Pennsylvania in November of 2014.
