Growing Greener Grants For Trails, Heritage Programs

Potter County Today

Years ago, voters across Pennsylvania decided that the state should borrow millions of dollars to be used for environmental and outdoor recreation projects. Since then, the “Growing Greener” has had a major impact both locally and statewide. Another round of grants was announced last week. Among those with local impacts:

  • $130,000 to the Pa. Lumber Heritage region for historical signs, forestry education and other projects.
  • $130,000 to the Pa. Rt. 6 Heritage Corridor Partnership to support conservation, preservation, hospitality training, business development, heritage communities and artisan trails.
  • $150,000 to support greenways and open space plans in the counties of Potter, Cameron, Elk, McKean, Jefferson and Clearfield.
  • $18,000 to the Bureau of Forestry for equipment to maintain 90 miles of ATV and snowmobile trails in Potter County.
  • $160,000 to the Pa. State Snowmobile Assn. for grooming equipment and improvement projects on snowmobile trails throughout Pennsylvania.

Funds come from the Growing Greener bond issue and the state’s share of the realty transfer tax.
