PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — The Schuylkill Environmental Education Center recently announced that it has permanently preserved a piece of land known as the Boy Scout Tract.
The 24-acre property was pledged to them through an anonymous $3 million donation.
Just down the road from their 340-acre main campus, the Boy Scout Tract will now be an extension of the permanently preserved land in the upper Roxborough area.
The center says it will help expand the various programs they already have.
According to Executive Director Mike Weilbacher, the property will help bring not only green space to the area, but also clean air and the fight against climate change.
