Local News

The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Secretary, Cindy Adams Dunn, joined the Bureau of State Parks officials Friday to dedicate an electric car charging station at Prince Gallitzin State Park.

It is the second of 40 installations planned for state parks and forests across the state. The hope is to help reduce greenhouse gases, smog and improve air quality statewide.
