Monthly Newsletter for June, 2018
Pocono Heritage Land Trust honors Edward Cramer with the “This Land is Your Land” Award.

More than 50 PHLT supporters gathered on May 4th at Water Gap Country Club to hold their annual meeting and celebrate recent organizational achievements, including the groundbreaking of the Brodhead Creek Heritage Center at the former Penn Hills golf course, now Stroud Township’s ForEvergreen Nature Preserve.

State Representative Representative Maureen Madden also presented Ed Cramer with a framed print by artist and PHLT board member Don Baylor. Baylor’s painting is of a pool on the Brodhead Creek, which will be named “Ed and Mary’s Pool” in honor of Cramer and his late wife Mary.

The map contains data for each property including acreage, status of public access, year established, and managing organization.
