The Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) honored Boy Scout Troop 120 for completing its impressive goal of visiting 120 state parks. They did this in honor of their late Assistant Scoutmaster, Jodi Brabazon, who died of complications from COVID-19.

Led by its scoutmaster, Robert Gizinski, the Philadelphia-based troop began visiting state parks in 2016 following a camping trip at Fort Washington State Park.

State Parks Director John Hallas presented the troop with a secretarial citation Wednesday afternoon on behalf of Secretary Dunn to acknowledge and applaud the impressive accomplishment of the troop.

Over the course of five years, the troop traveled more than 8000 miles visiting 120 of Pennsylvania’s 121 state parks, enjoying camping, fishing, hiking, sightseeing and other outdoor activities.
