The Beaver County Conservation District will receive a Growing Greener grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, according to Senator Elder Vogel.
The Beaver County Conservation District will get $48,728 for its Brush Creek restoration efforts. The funds will be used for stream bank restoration/stabilization in Brush Creek and Green Valley parks.
“This is a great investment by the state in protecting the natural beauty of Brush Creek and Green Valley parks and improving the quality of life for the residents of Beaver County,” Senator Vogel said. “The state is partnering with local organizations to make a real difference in our environment.”
The local grant is part of more than $20.65 million in awards statewide in the current round of funding by the Department of Environmental for projects to improve watersheds, reduce stormwater runoff and acid mine drainage (AMD), and support educational programs, among other environmental efforts.
