Who We Are
HCCD works in our communities to improve our watersheds, especially through volunteer-led initiatives. Most of our volunteer events are run through our chapter of Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful, called Keep Huntingdon County Beautiful. Keep Huntingdon County Beautiful (KHCB) evolved from PA Cleanways of Huntingdon County, which was founded in 1999. We are community members motivated to improve land and waters in our county and who aren’t afraid to get our hands dirty!
What We Do
We endeavor to keep Huntingdon County beautiful through volunteer service. We host several popular annual events including the Juniata River Cleanup, the Huntingdon County Tire Wars, and the Mount Union Map Turtle Habitat Cleanup & Restoration. Additionally, we implement other litter and dump cleanups, invasive plant species removal parties,tree plantings, and more. Please look below to see how much fun we have and what a difference we make!
