Our natural places in Pennsylvania are struggling as we cut them into smaller and smaller pieces. This affects the wildlife, the outdoor recreation industry, and the communities that rely on these spaces for survival, prosperity, and health.

By reconnecting our state's ecosystems, we can also reconnect each other and ensure that Penn's Woods are supporting all of the life and activities that we love.

Come learn more about how wildlife corridors can be an effective and impactful tool in creating a healthier, more resilient future for our communities and our environment. We will hear from a panel of experts, then have time for a Q&A.

Our panel includes:

Lamar Gore, John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge Manager, US Fish and Wildlife Service

Laura Jackson, Conservation Chair, Pennsylvania Society for Ornithology; President, Save Our Allegheny Ridges

Dan Buford, Ecologist, Office of Project Development & Environmental Review, Federal Highways Administration

Peter Hudson, Former Director, Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences

Casey Schneck, Program Administrator, Keystone Trail Association

Special guest: Pennsylvania State Representative Mary Jo Daley, District 148
