PA DCNR Invites Military Families To Visit State Parks And Forests In April

HARRISBURG, Pa., March 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Secretary Richard Allan today invited military families with children to take advantage of free activities in state parks and forests during April, "The Month of the Military Child.''

In 1986, the secretary of defense designated each April as "The Month of the Military Child" to recognize the contribution a child makes as their parents serve our nation. 

"DCNR works every day to encourage our citizens to take time to explore and be active outdoors, which is important for kids who spend more and more time with electronic entertainment," Allan said.  "We'd especially like to connect military children with the outdoors since their parents have served to protect the lands and opportunities available for them to enjoy."

Some of the free programs available to families at state parks in April include:
  • Seasonal Pool Exploration, Black Moshannon, April 6, 10 a.m.
  • Birds and Blooms Hike, Keystone, April 6, 2 p.m.
  • Signs of Spring Hike, Promised Land, April 12, 1 p.m.
  • Experiencing a Spring Night Hike, Kings Gap Environmental Education Center, April 12, 8 p.m.
  • Fossil Hunting, Bald Eagle, April 13, 2 p.m.
