Have you checked out the new statewide outdoor recreation plan “Recreation for All”?  It’s available here to download.  The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources is conducting online webinars to present the vision, priorities, recommendations and survey findings for Pennsylvania’s 2020-2024 Outdoor Recreation Plan.  Each webinar will be one-hour in length with a presentation that will occur for the first 30 minutes followed by a question and answer period. After each webinar, participants will be encouraged to vote for your favorite action steps and provide general feedback on the plan’s 20 recommendations and over 100 actions through an online survey.

DCNR is offering these series of webinars to help you learn more about the plan and to focus on the plan’s five priority areas. They are free and will be held in October and November.

NATURE QUOTE:  Brightest in 2020: Mars will be at its brightest from Oct. 4 to Oct. 17. As was the case in 2018, this is a spectacular year for Mars. On Oct. 6 at 10:18 a.m. EDT, the planet will be at its closest to Earth in 2020; at that moment it will be 38.57 million miles (62.06 million km) away.
