Join Nature Abounds on Saturday, April 28th, 2012, for the first annual 
Forest Summit

for education, inspiration, and networking in Central Pennsylvania! 

 

At the Forest Summit, we’ll look at the issues the Pennsylvania forest is facing such as:

 

  •  
    • hydraulic “fracking”,
    • wildlife and wildlife rehabilitation,
    • climate change,
    • environmental health,
    • urban sprawl,
    • invasive plants/pests,
    • public lands and citizen rights and responsibilities
    • what citizens can do to help.

During the gathering, Nature Abounds will launch our new Citizen Watchvolunteer opportunity, which will engage citizens in protecting and cleaning up our local forest and rural areas

 

You can also network with other activists and volunteers from around the state, and possibly from surrounding states as well.  We also have an area set aside for marketing, casual social discussion, and information sharing

 

This is one event that you are welcome to bring your family and kids along. There’s plenty of space and hiking trails in the park for anyone that wants to take a break from the activities, and there’s also a ball field nearbyLikewise, there are a lot of attractions in the area, from viewing the PA elk herd, trying to eat a 5 lb. burger, or even checking out the millions of years old rock formation at Bilger RocksHow about making a family weekend of fun?

 

Snacks and beverages will be available for purchase at the event as will Nature Abounds polo shirts.  In case of inclement weather, we have set a back up date of Saturday, May 19th

Please register before April 14th at http://www.natureabounds.org/The_Forest_Summit.html .
