A Block Party for the Planet - Earth Day Celebration in Mt Lebanon this Saturday

Are you interested in learning more about recycling? How about Green Building? Ever want to test driving a Toyota Prius? If you answered yes to any of these questions you should try to attend "A Block Party for the Planet" tomorrow in Mt Lebanon. Details are below and you can find more on the event website.

Are you an “earth” mover or shaker? Do you care about what happens to the planet you live on? Do you want to know how you can make a difference? Then join us for the first annual Earth Day Celebration in Mt. Lebanon!

This event will take place on Saturday, April 26th 2008 at the Unitarian Universalist Church of the South Hills, better known as Sunnyhill between the hours of 10 – 5.

There will be healthy snacks, entertainment, and “green” art to make and enjoy. Attendees will learn how to support local farms, become familiar with Mount Lebanon’s numerous parks and recycling efforts, learn about environmentally safe and energy efficient living, and just have fun.

Hi Chris,
They are doing this again, but it's this Saturday at the Mt. Lebanon Main Park. It should be a beautiful day.
I watched Frontline last night about all the problems with pollution in the water supply and in the bays. It's just disgusting.
See you around town and thanks for always supporting local art!
