Andrew Heath Receives PA Recreation & Park Society Presidental Citation

Pennsylvania Growing Greener Coalition Executive Director Andrew Heath recently received the presidential citation from PA Recreation & Park Society board president William Wert for his leadership in advocating for the Commonwealth’s parks, trails and open spaces.

“The Pennsylvania Recreation & Park Society is fortunate to have Andrew’s leadership in our efforts to ensure that all Pennsylvanians have access to well-managed parks and recreational opportunities,” said Wert. “Andrew is a tireless advocate for our parks and trails and is committed to making sure future generations have opportunities to enjoy all the outdoor recreation opportunities the Commonwealth has to offer.”

Heath has served as the executive director of Growing Greener since 2010. Under his leadership, the Coalition has helped secure funding for recreation, conservation and preservation through the Marcellus Legacy Fund.

“Parks and other recreational opportunities provide numerous economic, environmental and quality of life benefits that help make the Commonwealth a great place to live, work and visit,” said Heath. “I am honored to receive this citation and look forward to continuing to work with PRPS to ensure that important parks and natural resources remain protected for future generations to enjoy.”

Heath, 35, is a native of Delaware County and currently lives in Lancaster. He is a graduate of Messiah College in Grantham, Pa., where he earned his BA in politics.
