What’s an EAC?
Any municipality in Pennsylvania may establish an environmental advisory council to tap the skills and volunteer energy of its citizens. Consisting of three to seven members appointed by the local government, an EAC can undertake a variety of conservation projects. It can also research issues and advise local government officials to help inform decision-making regarding the environment.
What’s the EAC Network?
The EAC Network, managed by WeConservePA, helps environmental advisory council volunteers help one another. It creates opportunities for the people involved in EACs to bounce ideas off each other and share experiences and lessons learned. It provides in-person and digital forums for people to work together to answer each other’s questions and solve problems together.
Open Space Program Network Forum
The forum works as a platform for participants to share relevant experiences, raise inquiries, and address issues.
