Conservation & Recreation Authority

The Cambria County Conservation & Recreation Authority (CCCRA) is a body of local government (incorporated under the Pennsylvania Municipalities Authority Act of 1945) by the Cambria County Commissioners in January of 1994.  The purpose of the Authority is to establish recreational opportunities and assist with the cleanup of coal mining polluted rivers throughout Cambria County. The Authority works closely with and utilizes staff of the Cambria County Conservation District for technical assistance on projects.  The Authority is made up of a board of fifteen (15) residents from all parts of the County who are appointed by the County Commissioners for staggered five-year terms.  Staff consists of an Executive Director and Program Coordinator.
