This third annual event focuses on the environmental health of Central Pennsylvania’s natural resources. We will create a network of local residents, public agencies, non-profit groups, schools, hospitals and churches. Educational topics will include recreation, water protection, sustainable agriculture, farming machinery, clean power, flora and fauna. There will be interactive demonstrations, activities for all ages, and the chance to meet the people who protect and preserve our area. We invite our neighbors to set aside their digital devices and get together face-to- face to enjoy a networking fair and to learn how to work together to protect our natural resources. Organizations will be assigned informational booth space to display their efforts; farms, CSAs and local restaurants will be able to display programs, menus and products. The public will browse these displays, sample products, and engage in conversations and hands-on activities for all ages. Hufnagle Park will serve as a hub for activities which will branch out within easy walking distance throughout downtown Lewisburg. This event will offer an opportunity for community members, businesses and organizations to learn from each other about ways to Protect, Preserve and Play in the Central Susquehanna region. We will give people a chance to network and in a family-friendly and recreational setting, and to explore organization memberships and volunteer opportunities.
“Protect, Preserve, and Play,” a collaborative project of the CommUnity Zone, the Donald Heiter Community Center, the Susquehanna Valley Climate Action Network, and the Rivertown Coalition for Clean Air and Clean Water, will be held Sunday, June 4, 2017.
