To lead and promote individual and collective actions to preserve Pennsylvania’s environmental resources for each generation.
The Pennsylvania Resources Council (PRC), a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit environmental organization, was founded in 1939 by a group of concerned citizens in the Philadelphia area who were concerned with the proliferation of billboards and other forms of roadside blight.
over the years PRC has focused on a variety of environmental issues including Anti-Littering campaigns, Environmental Living Classes (composting, worm composting, rain barrels) and water conservation and stormwater management education. Recently PRC received a cooperative grant to build rain gardens in the region. These are designed to divert rain water and runoff from the storm sewers, which flow into area creeks, stream and rivers. The water is redirected to a garden where pollutants can be naturally cleaned through the soil.
