Happy Earth Day in the Lehigh Valley


Hope many of you took a LANTA bus today or biked to work (or, at least, considered it).

In case you are looking for a great way to celebrate Earth Day 2010 in the Lehigh Valley, the Wildlands Conservancy is organizing the Great Lehigh Valley Clean-Up at five different locations this Saturday, April 24. The five locations are: Pool Wildlife Sanctuary (Emmaus), Canal Park (Allentown), Sand Island (Bethlehem), Freemansburg Island, or Hugh Moore Park (Easton).

The event starts at 9 a.m. and should be over around noon. Be sure to bring a pair of work gloves and to wear appropriate clothing and sturdy shoes or boots.

This project is organized in conjunction with the Great American Clean-Up of Pennsylvania. Sign up here for the event.

For more information, please contact Elizabeth McKinney, Development Manager, at 610.965.4397, ext. 126 or emckinney@wildlandspa.org.

For 35 years, the Wildlands Conservancy has served its mission to “preserve, protect, restore, and enhance the land, water, ecological, and recreational resources of the Lehigh Valley and the Lehigh River valley” and to “foster responsible stewardship of our resources through education of our youth and by raising the environmental awareness of the general public.”

Happy Earth Day, Lehigh Valley.
