“Kayaking and Birding in the Pennsylvania State Parks” will be presented by Marci Mowery, president of the Pennsylvania Parks and Forest Foundation at the South Mountain Audubon Society on Monday, June 17.

Free and open to the public, the talk will be held at the Adams County Agricultural Resource Center, 670 Old Harrisburg Road in Gettysburg. Refreshments will be at 7 p.m. followed by the meeting and presentation at 7:30 p.m.

A former high school educator, Mowery entered the conservation arena 25 years ago and has served as president of the Pennsylvania Parks and Forests Foundation (PPFF) since 2005.

PPFF began in 1999 as a statewide nonprofit organization to provide a voice for the commonwealth’s 121 state parks and 2.2 million acres of forest land. Through PPFF, citizens can donate or bequeath money to state parks and forests, become active and involved volunteers in the park and forest system, and find fun and educational opportunities.
