Did you know that September is Trails Month in PA?

For 2019, PEC has partnered with DCNR to promote events that encourage people to get out and explore. Trails not only take us from point A to B, they open us to new experiences and help to reaffirm our sense of place in the world.  If you can, head to one of these events to experience what makes our natural world so amazing.
