Healthy Lands Week 2022
Healthy Lands Week is all about leveraging additional volunteer support for public lands to encourage public engagement and stewardship. WeConservePA is a partner for Healthy Lands Week 2022–we encourage all our partners to familiarize themselves with the activities being planned and, if possible, create a volunteer opportunity of their own. Healthy Lands Week is a statewide initiative to strengthen volunteer activities and raise awareness of stewardship of public lands. Through clean-up and beautification events, invasive species removal and maintenance projects, volunteer recognitions, and other initiatives, it is an annual “rallying cry” for public stewardship of public lands, parks and open spaces in Pennsylvania. This year’s impactful event runs from National Public Lands Day on September 24 through A Walk in Penn’s Woods Day on October 2. Healthy Lands Week also supports Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful’s Pick Up Pennsylvania initiative.
