EcoAction in the News

Hi, All!

Saltsburg EcoAction has been so busy lately that I've been neglectful of keeping you all up to date on the great activities we have going on here. First of all, we had a lovely write up in the local paper that comprised three pages. You can see it online at http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/blairsvilledispatch/s_620952.html.

Earth Week was great for us. We cleaned up our campus, had a speaker bring in a reptile show, learned about the ecomony of homegrown veggies (and grew some of our own) and had a wonderful bash at the end.

Our Envirothon teams recently participated in the county Envirothon and ranked sixth and tenth overall. We're especially proud that our JV team came in second in the Wildlife category. Congrats to Marion Center for their first place victory!

This weekend, we're taking a canoeing and camping trip. It should be nice weather, so we're very excited.

The big news, though, is our joining PFC (Principals for Change) Greenspaces. It's a great way to network with other ecology based organizations in our area and we're very excited to have been asked to take part. If you're in our area (PA) and you're interested in an invitation to join this great group, please email me!
