“PRC was busy in spring and even busier heading into summer, stewarding resources to reduce waste and conserve the environment,” reports PRC Executive Director Darren Spielman. “Education efforts were in overdrive this spring when we educated thousands of K12 students and adults to steward the environment.”
- A new $25,000 grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection is supporting PRC composting education, enabling community members to learn how to waste less, compost correctly, and reduce their impact on the environment.
- PRC partnered with businesses and with residents in the community, helping 769 adults learn how to waste less and recycle right, compost, and manage stormwater on their properties to protect watersheds.
- PRC reached 3,505 K12 students in 12 schools, teaching them about the importance of watersheds and how to protect them through everyday activities, how to waste less and recycle right, and the importance of alternative energy sources – all while advancing the students’ understanding of PA science standards.
“We are proud of our hard work as we strive with our partners to create a Pennsylvania where nothing is wasted,” says Spielman.
