Preserving Our Forests

The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) will soon begin a series of hearings across the state as part of their desire for involving the public in charting the future course of Pennsylvania’s state forests.

The Elk State Forest will be the subject of a meeting to be held Wednesday, June 13, from 6-8:30 p.m. at the Elk State Forest Resource Management Center, 258 Sizerville Road, Emporium.

The signs are to aid in curbing speeding and face northbound traffic. They will remain in their locations for up to four weeks.
