Veterans and our State Parks and Forests
As Americans, we are blessed to share the gift of a free country, where we can be secure in our individual rights and liberties. This gift of freedom does not come without great cost however. It is purchased by generations of American patriots who have served and sacrificed. Patriots who we call veterans.
It is thanks to service members past, present and future who protect our freedoms, that we have the vast system of public lands that we all get to cherish and enjoy. The Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources recognizes the dedication and sacrifice of our military members and their families and we encourage them to explore and enjoy the lands they have served so valiantly to protect.
