Closing the College Loop
The farm at Dickinson College is closing the loop on food production by providing the college with all natural, locally grown produce for the cafeteria. What’s leftover comes back to the farm for re‐use.
Our Historic Tree Nursery
The Penn Nursery has been helping to reforest our state forest for years. This site houses some of the oldest seed records available.
The Great Allegheny Passage
The Great Allegheny Passage, is a 150‐mile system of biking and hiking trails that connects Cumberland, MD and Pittsburgh, PA. The connection to the C & O Canal Towpath in Cumberland, MD was made in 2006, creating a continuous non‐motorized corridor, 318 miles long, from McKeesport, near Pittsburgh, to Washington, DC.
Return of the Lehigh Gap
In 2002, the Lehigh Gap Nature Center purchased over 750 acres on the Kittatinny Ridge along the Lehigh River and in Lehigh Gap in eastern Pennsylvania. Much of the land was degraded by industrial pollution and is being restored using native, warm‐season (prairie) grasses.
Trout Unlimited and hundreds of schools throughout the state are raising our native brook trout in classrooms to teach students about the importance of our state fish.
Trout Unlimited is a national organization with about 400 chapters reaching all over the United States. They work to apply "the very best information and thinking available" to help conserve the natural living environment for fish. Their vision is to ensure that robust populations of native and wild coldwater fish once again thrive within their North American range, so that our children can enjoy healthy fisheries in their home waters.
Through their fifty years of dedication, Trout Unlimited has been involved in hundreds of stream restoration projects and was active in compelling Congress to strengthen the Clean Water Act. Today, Trout Unlimited continues to strive to achieve its vision, with over 150,000 active members nationwide.
