Blair project receives support

A Blair County project is among three Pennsylvania projects to receive funding from national nonprofit Keep America Beautiful and Lowe’s.

Keep Blair Beautiful will receive $10,000 to create bird, bat and pollinator habitats while educating the community on their importance.

“We are appreciative that Lowe’s and Keep America Beautiful continue to support our efforts to promote clean, green and beautiful places here in Blair County. We are excited, especially, to partner with our local libraries and the Blair County Conservation District to provide this unique environmental education opportunity. Raising awareness and understanding of crucial habitat, especially for our beleaguered bats is particularly valuable and we’re delighted to be able to enhance such efforts in the county,” said John Frederick of Keep Blair Beautiful in a statement.
