Since 1970, PEC has been a central figure in the environmental and conservation discussion in Pennsylvania — and we will continue to play that role. Every day, PEC manages challenges facing Pennsylvania’s water, land, and air resources whether from past activities, current practices, or potential future impacts.


We are not the only environmental voice in the Commonwealth, but we uniquely inform our statewide policy advocacy with on-the-ground local and regional projects. We're better at both because we do both.

Davitt B. Woodwell, President Pennsylvania Environmental Council
