Public Comment Period on DCNR’s Forest Plan Ends November 30th!

DCNR held a public meeting on October 28th in Monroeville for public comment on the 2015 State Forest Resource Management Plan (SFRMP).  The Bureau of Forestry develops this document as the primary reference governing how Pennsylvania’s numerous state forests may be used.  Numerous PACCSA members attended the meeting to comment on issues related to cross-country skiing and trail grooming in the State Forests.  

Citizens may still submit written comments related to the SFRMP until November 30th.  If you would like to submit a comment to DCNR, there is an online survey available that makes the process easy.  You can also submit comments via e-mail to  If you still haven't taken a look at the SFRMP, click here and pay particular attention to the “recreation” sections, pages 166 through 183.  

Thank you for doing your part to ensure that DCNR’s state forests remain a great place for cross-country skiing!
