PPFF’s mission is to inspire stewardship of Pennsylvania’s state parks and forests through public engagement in volunteerism, education and recreation. We do this through the establishment of friends groups, coordination of volunteer efforts, investment in transformative projects to improve the visitor experience, investment in making our parks and forests accessible to all by removing barriers to spending time outdoors, and through education and outreach. The Pennsylvania Parks and Forests Foundation is the only Pennsylvania non-profit whose mission is YOUR state parks and forests. We connect people to the outdoors to improve human health, engage in outdoor recreation, and to inspire the continuation of the conservation legacy of the commonwealth. Our goal: a place and an experience for everyone in the outdoors.
