PATACF hosts a Walk in Penn’s Wood

Walk in Penn’s Woods is a project of the Center for Private Forests at Penn State University.  It was envisioned as a day for people across Pennsylvania to visit and learn about the forests that enhance our well-being. Forests are always working for us, providing recreation, wildlife habitat, beauty, improved water quality, clean air, wood products, carbon storage, and more.
