CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - An educational environmental center may become a fixture at Letterkenny Opportunity Center if the federal government approves a proposal from Chambersburg Area School District.
The school district has preliminary plans for a center for environmental and agricultural studies on 250 acres at Letterkenny Army Depot - part of 1,500 acres the Army is transferring to Franklin County for industrial development.
Though details are not yet final, the center would be similar to the Tayamentasachta Environmental Center on East Leitersburg Street in Greencastle. Plans call for renovating existing athletic fields, building a nursery and greenhouse, and developing nature trails for use by students and the public.
