On Thursday, October 19, 2023, EC marked an enormous milestone with the transfer of 1,400 acres of its property in the Pinchot State Forest. The tract runs along Wilkes-Barre Mountain in Hanover and Newport Townships and includes the Hanover Reservoir. We know it’s a place we know is much-loved by many! With this sale, EC is just over 600 acres away of meeting our goal to commit 10,000 acres of former coal-company land to recreation and greenspace. This achievement was reached in collaboration with North Branch Land Trust and the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. Read the article from the Times Leader here.
