It was 5 years ago when Margarita Caicedo visited Nolde Forest Environmental Education Center in Cumru Township. She was not aware that it was a public park and that the trails are open for her for her comfort and exploration.

5 years later, Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Secretary Cindy Adams Dunn unveiled the new Nature for All trailhead signs that were designed to ensure the public is aware about the state park. About 25 signs and posters are being distributed throughout the state park.

“These signs are a visible reminder of DCNR’s commitment to conserve and maintain Pennsylvania’s public natural resources for the benefit of all people, as stated in Pennsylvania’s Constitution by way of its Environmental Rights Amendment,” Dunn said. “Diversity, equity and inclusion will continue to be a critical focus within DCNR so that Nature for All is a reality. We must create the necessary conditions to ensure all Pennsylvanians feel welcome on public lands.”
