Grants Secured For Coudersport Arboretum

The arrival of spring has brought about increased activity at the Coudersport Arboretum. Dick Buchanan, a member of the committee reported at Tuesday’s meeting of the Coudersport Area Chamber of Commerce that many projects are already underway or will begin within a few days.

County Commissioner Susan Kefover worked with the Redevelopment Authority to obtain a $10,000 Community Development Block Grant through Sen. Joe Scarnati and Rep. Marty Causer to be used at the park.

Sheetz Corporation recently donated $2,000 toward the arboretum. Buchanan said Names will be placed on a memorial wall soon, shrubs will be added and a path will be put into place following foot flow.

Buchanan invited interested persons to attend the next Arboretum Committee meeting to be held at 5:30 p.m. April 23 at the Depot. He told the group, the project is designed to be on-going with improvements being made each season.
