KEYSTONE Recreation, Park & Conservation Fund
The Governor's proposed 2012-13 budget would eliminate all conservation, park, and recreation funding from the Keystone Recreation, Park and Conservation Fund. To date the Keystone Fund and DCNR have supported LCC in the acquisition of 5,231 acres of land and funded 18 natural resource projects (such as our work in the Lower Susquehanna Conservation Landscape Initiative and the Fishing Creek Conservation Plan). Many other organizations and municipalities have united with DCNR to utilize this fund and protect over 145,000 acres of green space, complete 846 trail projects, implement over 2,000 community park development projects, execute 490 historic preservation projects, and help fund 212 library projects. In order to keep the fund alive, please contact your state and local representatives to tell them:
• You oppose the Governor's budget proposal to divert Community Park and land trust grant money from the Keystone Recreation, Park and Conservation Fund to general state operations.
• To inform other legislative leaders and colleagues that the Keystone Recreation, Park and Conservation Fund must be protected in the budget negotiations.
Any questions or need more information about this effort? Feel free to contact the Conservancy, (717) 392-7891.
