Restore Damaged Land
For much of its history, Pennsylvania’s reserves of coal, oil, and gas have powered the nation, and its factories have churned out products used worldwide. But the resource-extraction and manufacturing industries have also taken a serious toll on the land, inflicting damage that lingers decades later. Environmental Stewardship Fund investments rehabilitate natural areas scarred by abandoned mines and wells, and help communities transform neglected industrial sites into functional, valuable spaces.
