Schuylkill Center to Host Green Town Meeting This Week
Fracking (and how to tax it) has been a major issue in the Pennsylvania governor’s race between incumbent Gov. Tom Corbett and his challenger, Tom Wolf, but what about all the other environmental problems you care about: Clean water? Bicycling infrastructure? Alternative energy?
From 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 9, the Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education is hosting a Green Town Hall Meeting with panelists including Michael Krancer, Governor Corbett’s first DEP chief, environmental attorney Robert Fox; the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia’s Sarah Clark Stuart; and Jamie Gauthier, executive director of the Sustainable Business Network of Philadelphia.
“Understanding the relationship between the environment and politics is as important as understand the interactions of water, soil, and plant life,” says Mike Weilbacher, executive director of the Schuylkill Center. “The Green Town Meeting fits into our work to encourage environmental stewardship.”
And if the the fate of our Commonwealth’s air, land, and water isn’t enough to bring you out, there will be Yards beer too.
Tickets are free, but please RSVP.
