PA Parks and Forestry Association (PPFF) Stewardship Poster and Video Contest

PA Parks and Forestry Association

In 2016, the PPFF launched an initiative to steward our state forests and parks called Stewards of Penn’s Woods. As part of that program, we have started to remove graffiti from our parks and forests. But we know we also need to educate the public on the impacts of graffiti if we are going to effectively conserve these lands for all to enjoy. Our PPFF poster and video contests are meant to raise student awareness about the importance of stewarding our state parks and forests.
