On September 24, 1963, President John F. Kennedy arrived at Grey Towers, the historic home of Gifford Pinchot, to begin a five-day conservation tour and dedicate the mansion and 102 acres to the US Forest Service for the Pinchot Institute for Conservation Studies. The Forest Service, the Pinchot Institute for Conservation, the Grey Towers Heritage Association, Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau and local community organizations are planning a national celebration to mark the 50th anniversary.
