Pottstown is another of the region’s former manufacturing hubs. Like many of its peers, Pottstown’s major industries declined in the second half of the 20th century, but new businesses and residents are sparking new energy.
Since 2016, Natural Lands has been working to improve the green spaces in Pottstown and the residents’ appreciation of them. That year, we launched Powered by Nature, an innovative outdoor education program that will serve all fourth, fifth, and sixth graders in the Pottstown School District. The goal? To empower Pottstown’s children to be good stewards of the environment, their community, and their own lives. We’re also providing guidance to the Borough on ways to care for the natural resources in their parks.
