We've helped cut dangerous mercury pollution.

In 2011, the Environmental Protection Agency moved to cut mercury, soot and smog pollution from power plants. We expect these standards to save more than 46,000 lives each year. PennEnvironment’s staff built support across the state to ensure these rules were adopted.

We're fighting for park protection.

Valley Forge. Ohiopyle. Gettysburg. The Delaware Water Gap. These and dozens of Pennsylvania parks are the places where we go to hike, fish, and get a breath of fresh air with our friends and family. This year, PennEnvironment helped convince Sen. Robert Casey to support funding for one of America’s most important—and successful—park preservation programs. This will ensure the best places in Pennsylvania and across the nation will be funded and protected now and for future generations.
