[CDT] - The Penns Valley Conservation Association was the recipient of a $3,000 grant recently that will help to support group environmental education projects in the Penns Creek watershed. The grant was made possible through the Environmental Education Act, which is funded by 5% of the pollution fines and penalties collected annually by the DEP. The announcement was made on Earth Day by Democrat State Rep. Mike Hanna who commented that "the association has been promoting environmental stewardship with zeal for 20 years". Executive Director Andrea Ferich said that money will go toward the Upper Penns Creek watershed restoration and protection project.
