The Governor will be joined on the water by First Lady Susan Corbett and representatives of the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and the Department of Environmental Protection.
Setting off on Monday morning from Tidioute, Warren County, Corbett is kayaking down the Allegheny and Conemaugh rivers; visiting Forest, Venango and Warren counties, Johnstown and Pittsburgh. Throughout the trip, the Governor will be spending time on water as well as on land touring several Pennsylvania parks and historic sites.
The Governor will also visit parks and historic sites in the region to see the successful partnership of preservation and economic growth. Pennsylvania parks are more popular than ever as an affordable destination and outdoor recreation option.
In addition to DCNR and DEP, the Governor will be joined throughout the trip by representatives from the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission and various local tourism and recreation groups.
