Our chapter was the recipient of the Conservation Organization of the Year Award from the PA Association of Conservation Districts in 2003, and the PATU State Council’s Best Chapter Award in 2000, and again in 2009.

If you’re not already a member, please consider joining TU. And if you are a member, we’d love to see you at a chapter meeting, workday or special event. There are a number of ways to get involved …
and they’re all fun, and fulfilling!
