Welcome To the Conservation Officer's Of Pennsylvania - COPA Website
In early 1994, Pennsylvania's Wildlife and Waterways Conservation Officers formed and incorporated the Conservation Officers of Pennsylvania Association (COPA). COPA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax-deductible organization under the Internal Revenue Code. COPA is also registered with the Pennsylvania's Bureau of Charitable Organizations.
BROCKWAY, Pa. – The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission today placed a marker recognizing the country’s first-ever training school for conservation officers.
The marker, placed in Jefferson County at Game School and Empire Ridge roads, is about 1½ miles from the site of the original Ross Leffler School of Conservation – the Pennsylvania Game Commission’s training school for law-enforcement officers.
The 30th Class of the Ross Leffler School of Conservation is proud to offer its official class patch commemorating both the class and the delisting of the Bald Eagle from the Pennsylvania Threatened Species List in 2014.
Your purchase of one of these patches helps to support the Cadets of the RLSC 30th Class and continues a tradition of commemorative patch offerings by the Cadets of each class.
