Funding for Pennsylvania Trails in Jeopardy

As more people are seeking trails and the outdoors for physical activity and solace during these times of isolation, legislators in Harrisburg are targeting the Keystone Recreation, Park and Conservation Fund.

The Keystone Fund, created in 1993 with broad support, is a critical source of funding for trails, including the developing 1,500-mile Industrial Heartland Trails network and cross-country Great American Rail-Trail in Western Pennsylvania, and the 800-mile Circuit Trails network in the Philadelphia region.

A bill moving through the legislature (H.B. 2004) would end this recurring allocation schedule and allow the General Assembly to repurpose the funds away from these vital outdoor resources, just when Pennsylvanians need them the most.

Take action now: Tell your legislator to protect Keystone funding for trails, parks and land conservation and oppose H.B. 2004.
