Enhance Penn's Woods
Pennsylvania’s state parks and forests welcome millions of visitors each year. A close to 3-million acre system so well-loved and well-used requires real commitment to maintain and improve.
DCNR now has additional tools to invest in our public lands with a 2-year, more than $200 million investment in upgrades and repairs called Enhance Penn’s Woods. It will enable DCNR to be better stewards of the parks and forests. This fact sheet contains more information about projects and funding sources.
