Applications are now being accepted for the 2018 Astronomy in Chile Educator Ambassadors Program (ACEAP)
This program, in its fourth year, brings amateur astronomers, planetarium personnel, and astronomy educators to several U.S.-funded astronomy observatories in Chile. While there, ambassadors will receive behind-the-scenes tours of some of the world’s most productive and advanced telescopes, including in-depth information on their instruments and discoveries.

Excessive heat waves -- Intense rainfall -- Rising seas
Our climate is changing. Greenhouse gas emissions are accelerating. Extreme weather events are becoming more frequent.
The Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency in partnership with Keystone Emergency Management Association, PA Department of Conservation & Natural Resources, PA Department of Education, American Red Cross, United Way of Pennsylvania, and the PA National Weather Service Offices are excited to announce the inaugural 2017 Weather Safety Awareness Poster and Video PSA contests!
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.
