How to Get Involved

Getting involved in the conservation work of the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) is easier than you might think!

We also encourage you to reach out directly to your local state park or forest to inquire about ways you can support their initiatives.

Pennsylvania Parks and Forests Foundation

The Pennsylvania Parks and Forests Foundation (PPFF) is a valuable partner of the DCNR and a statewide nonprofit organization dedicated to advocating for state parks and forests. They provide a platform for citizens to become active and engaged volunteers in our park and forest systems. By joining the PPFF, you can lend a helping hand and make a lasting impact on the natural spaces in your community.

Join a Friends Group

Friends groups are communities of like-minded individuals who enjoy volunteering their time, services, and support to our state parks and forests. These groups understand the value of our natural resources and share a common goal of making our parks and forests the best in the commonwealth. By joining a friends group, you’ll have the opportunity to connect with fellow nature enthusiasts and contribute to the preservation of public lands in local communities.

Check out the Pennsylvania Parks and Forests Foundation’s map of friends groups to find out if there’s already a group at your local state park or forest. If not, consider starting one yourself and gather your friends to make an even bigger impact!
