The Wilkes-Barre Family YMCA received two Pocono Forest and Waters Conservation Landscape Initiative mini-grants to support the 2012 Downtown Wilkes-Barre Bicycle and Pedestrian Count and the upcoming 2013 Keystone Active Zone Passport program scheduled to begin in April 2013. The grants, funded through the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources' Community Conservation Program administered by the Pennsylvania Environmental Council, support projects that work to protect and promote the cultural and natural assets within the six counties that make up the Pocono Forest and Waters Conservation Landscape. The landscape includes Luzerne, Carbon, Lackawanna, Monroe, Pike and Wayne Counties. For more information about the projects or the Pennsylvania Environmental Council, contact Carol Hussa at 718-6507 or visit www.pecpa.org.
