"Pennsylvania Recreation Plan Focuses on Connection between Health, Outdoor Activities"

Pennsylvania’s new five-year Outdoor Recreation Plan shows a need to change the way policy-makers and communities approach outdoor recreation in light of a changing population that is increasingly more urban, and whose children have been spending less time outdoors. To view the plan or for more information, visit www.paoutdoorrecplan.com ~press release from DCNR.
