Dear {{Constituent First Name}}:

How quickly the seasons change, with the warm days giving way to crisp nights, perfect for camping and campfires. You remain busy during these shortening days, with an impressive array of projects, volunteer days, and events scheduled throughout the month.

Thank you to those who participated in the inaugural Healthy Lands Week! We understand the registration process was a wee bit clunky and are committed to making the process easier in 2023. We welcome your feedback.

For the early birds among you, the updated chapter annual report is on the website at the Friends Resources page in both Excel and pdf. Remember, if you sell items we will need an end-of-year inventory that captures what you have on hand at the close of the year. If your group doesn’t meet in the month of December, please make an effort to perform your inventory before the close of the year.

Yours in the Outdoors,



Marci J. Mowery, President


Have you had a chance to check out the Conflict Resolution Training yet? I know - you've been busy! Feedback is very much appreciated on this as it is the first time we've attempted this format.

As a reminder from last month, the materials can be found in PPFF's Google Drive in a shared folder called "Conflict Resolution Training." 

In the folder is an Introduction and three training modules. The lessons in each of the modules are presented as a video or a pdf and include supporting materials and hypothetical scenarios or discussion questions. Our suggestion would be to open (and print if you have that capability), the supporting materials and questions for ease of reference within the lessons themselves.

Finally, an evaluation form will help provide feedback once you've had a chance to go through the materials. We are very interested to hear your thoughts on the series as this is the first time that we've offered a "DIY" work-at-your-own-pace training module. 


In place of the Chapter Chat this month we issue one final invitation to attend the National Association of State Park Foundation’s annual virtual conference. With national thought leaders on a variety of topics, this conference is sure to provide you with some new information. You can register here:

Register by 10.12,2022 to be sure to receive the links to participate.


The newest edition of our newsletter, Penn’s Stewards, is on the newsstands! Well, on the website and in mailboxes. The lead story is an historic perspective of the iron industry and the Underground Railroad. You can download it from the Publications page of our website:

If you would like a hard copy, let Jenna know.


Also know that the newest beer to support state parks and forests is the Replenish IPA from New Trail Brewing Company. $1 of every case sold will be donated to PPFF for tree planting initiatives across the state. We are excited to have this growing fund to help chapters and volunteers restore tree canopies lost due to invasive insects and climate impacts.


As we see more campfires around the campground, it is a great time to remind folks of campfire etiquette. Share a copy of the Campfire Savvy infographic on your social media.


The annual report celebrating our collective successes was included in our most recent newsletter. We have pulled it out as a stand alone document, as well. You can find it on the Publications page of the website:

Feel free to share to show the collective success of friends in action.
