DEP Partnership Reviving Landscape

DEP Partnership Reviving Landscape

The Community Foundation for the Alleghenies has long championed environmental restoration and preservation. Our partnership with the PA Department of Environmental Protection is a cornerstone of those efforts. Along with the DEP’s Bureau of Abandoned Mine Reclamation, the grant-making Foundation for PA Watersheds, numerous local municipalities, and local environmental and recreation groups, we’re tackling this region’s environmental challenges one river, one refuse pile, one shuttered treatment plant at a time.

Eric Cavazza, Director of the Bureau of Abandoned Mine Reclamation, addressed CFA Board members at their February 1 meeting, where he shared progress reports on a number of cleanups happening throughout Bedford, Cambria, and Somerset counties. These projects are happening right in our backyards – and they’re working. Click on the link below to see his full report:
