The Pennsylvania Environmental Council (PEC) has been awarded a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) to administer the 2016 Pocono Forests and Waters Conservation Landscape (PFW CL) Conservation Assistance Grant program. This program will provide mini-grants of $2,000 to $10,000 to projects within Carbon, Lackawanna, Luzerne, Monroe, Pike, and Wayne Counties that support and advance the goals and objectives of the PFW CL.
