APRIL WEBINAR SCHEDULE ANNOUNCED

Posted by: Mary Beth Mueller on March 29, 2021

How can you transform unwanted kitchen scraps into valuable organic matter to feed your garden?  How can you harvest and store roof water for use on your lawn and garden while practicing watershed stewardship?  What items should you place in the curbside recycling container?  And how can you properly dispose of electronic equipment?

Learn the answer to these – and many other – questions by attending a Pennsylvania Resources Council (PRC) online conservation webinar in April.

On April 15, individuals living throughout Pennsylvania can take part in a free online Recycling & Waste Reduction webinar to learn about curbside collection, hard-to-recycle options and pharmaceutical disposal.

Individuals living in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and surrounding areas can take part in a Backyard Composting webinar on April 5 or April 21 then pick up a compost bin at PRC headquarters.  Individuals living in the greater Pittsburgh area can register for a Watershed Awareness/Rain Barrel webinar on April 13 or April 29.

“PRC’s webinar format is an extremely convenient way to learn from the comfort of home and enables individuals throughout the Commonwealth to take part since webinars require no travel to a specific classroom location,” according to PRC Education Specialist Nancy Martin.

To register for a PRC webinar, visit www.prc.org/programs/webinars or call 412-977-6146.

PRC conservation workshop webinars are sponsored by Green Mountain Energy.
