Snyder announces grant to develop Wisecarver Recreation Area in Greene County

CARMICHAELS, Sept. 24 – State Rep. Pam Snyder announced a $200,000 state grant has been awarded to develop the Wisecarver Recreation Area in Franklin Township, Greene County.

Snyder, D-Greene/Fayette/Washington, said the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources grant will allow Greene County Parks and Recreation to construct an access drive, parking area, pedestrian walkway, softball field and stormwater management measures, along with other related site improvements.

“I’m pleased that this grant will allow Greene County to develop the Wisecarver Reservoir into a beautiful recreational area for residents and visitors to enjoy,” said Snyder. “Combined with a previous state investment of $200,000 two years ago, these additional funds bring the total state investment into this project to $400,000, and I look forward to its completion.”

The DCNR Recreation and Conservation grant program is funded with a variety of state and federal funding sources, including the Keystone Recreation, Park and Conservation Fund (Key 93), which includes Key-Community and Key-Land Trust; the Environmental Stewardship Fund; the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund; Pennsylvania Trails Fund; Pennsylvania Heritage Area Program; and the ATV Restricted Management Account Fund.
