From Valley Forge to our awe-inspiring state parks like Ohiopyle and Ricketts Glen, these are our greatest places—for PA and the nation. We’re working to make sure our parks have the resources they need to stave off threats like encroaching overdevelopment, mining, drilling and pollution.
Millions of bees are dying off, with alarming consequences for our environment and our food supply. We rely on bees to pollinate everything from almonds to strawberries to the alfalfa used to feed dairy cows. What happens if the bees disappear? It’s simple: No bees, no food.
Climate change is undoubtedly the greatest environmental challenge facing the planet. PennEnvironment is working to promote the solutions that we have at our fingertips to tackle climate change, and to take on the worst climate polluters here in Pennsylvania and across the nation.

Our children need safe drinking water — especially at school where they go to learn and play each day. Unfortunately, lead is contaminating drinking water at schools and pre-schools across the country. That’s why we’re working to Get the Lead Out.
We believe the health of our children is more valuable than the dollars saved when a fracking company dumps its waste into our water, and we bet nearly all Pennsylvanians agree. That’s why we’re spreading the word about fracking’s threats to our environment and health, and calling for stronger penalties when fracking companies commit violations of our laws.
Most Americans want more, not fewer, protections for the people and places we love. But the Trump administration is moving to slash the protections and programs that keep industries from polluting our air and water, threatening our health, degrading our public lands, and accelerating global warming. That's why we're working to defend our environmental protections from rollbacks in Washington, D.C.
When it comes to our streams, rivers, lakes and wetlands, they all deserve protection. Period. That's why we're working to defend the Clean Water Act. With your support, we're urging Pennsylvania’s members of Congress to vote against attempts to roll back the Clean Water Rule, which ensures the protection of nearly 50,000 miles of rivers and streams in Pennsylvania, and the drinking water sources for millions of the state’s residents.
The Pittsburgh area has some of the dirtiest air in the nation. And it’s putting the health of local residents—and in some cases even their lives—at serious risk. This is unacceptable. Clean air is a right—not a privilege.
The Bee Friendly Food Alliance is a network of chefs, restaurants, and others in the food industry coming together save the bees. With so much at stake, chefs and restaurant owners are doing their part and making their voices heard by the public and decision-makers.
Imagine being able to power our lives without harming the environment. Imagine our country producing and consuming energy while we enjoy healthy, livable communities. We have the power to give kids growing up today a livable future. That’s why we're calling for Pennsylvania and the nation to make a commitment to 100% renewable energy.
