The Progress News – To help build environmental stewardship by connecting families with community green spaces, the Friends of Black Moshannon State Park announced it is the recipient of a $5,000 Healing the Planet grant from The GIANT Company and Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful.
The funds are being used to purchase kayaks, paddles and ice skates. The equipment will be made available to the public via educational programs offered by the two park environmental educators.
Park Manager Rachel Eckman stated, “The $5,000 grant funding will help the park tremendously in our education efforts. Program participants range from pre-K-aged children to retired adults, families from across the state, other states and with a variety of economic backgrounds.”
