Pennsylvania awards $207,000 to historical site for trails and kiosks
The Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources has committed to investing $207,000 toward purchasing land for trails and educational kiosks around the Ebbert Spring Archaeological Preserve, according to Herald Mail Media.
The grant to The Archaeological Conservancy was among $45 million announced Friday by Department Secretary Cindy Adams Dunn for 261 projects across Pennsylvania.
The conservancy is planning for 12 acres of trails and signage to tell the story of the community's history from Paleo-Indian times to today.
Andy Stout, Eastern regional director of the nonprofit organization, said the steering committee will work with Greencastle-Antrim School District to develop kiosks that tie into classroom curriculum.
