"It's really exciting to see this project moving forward and getting done," said Brad Clemenson, communications director for the Pennsylvania Environmental Council.

The donations have allowed the project partners to construct nearly one mile of trail along the Stonycreek River behind the Johnstown Corp. mill to Central Avenue in Moxham.
