PA Brownfields Conference Highlights

The 2024 Pennsylvania Brownfields Conference was held from March 25 to the 27th at the Penn Stater Conference Center in State College, PA.

With nearly 400 registrants in the conference, we started with the EPA Grant Writing workshop, followed by the CABIN Summit on Monday afternoon. Extras at the conference included a flyfishing expedition that received many very favorable comments. Monday evenings Welcome Reception was held at the Axemann Brewery and provided a great networking opportunity for the attendees after a four year hiatus from the previous conference. Tuesday and Wednesday were filled with multiple breakout sessions that were all very well attended – thanks to all of the presenters in the sessions for providing great content. In addition, there were several plenary sessions where speakers from EPA, and DEP, provided keynote comments. We also featured two lunchtime plenary sessions with book author Joel Burcat, and Matt Ward that were well attended, and well received! Thanks to our exhibitors and sponsors for making this a very successful Brownfield Conference! Presentations, where permitted, can be viewed on the Program page found here:

We hope to see you all again at a future PA Brownfields Conference!
