Northeastern Pennsylvania is lush with forests, waterfalls, vistas and the majestic Susquehanna River. Here is where America found new wealth in anthracite coal and timber to fuel the Industrial Revolution. These industries left not only a rich history but also scarred landscapes and polluted streams. The Pennsylvania Environmental Council (PEC), through many partnerships, is tackling these issues and improving the economy through tourism and recreation in this scenic region.
The Pennsylvania Environmental Council (PEC) has partnered with the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) to support Shop Local Save Land through the Pocono Forests and Waters Conservation Landscape Initiative.
