Education / Public Relations

The Education/Public Relations Committee provides conservation and nature-related information and educational opportunities to community members within our service area. We work with teachers and students on in-school projects and competitions; provide nature walks and other outdoor recreational activities and offer seminars, talks and special programs-such as Caring for Communities-that celebrate land and waterways conservation. We also disseminate information about our work through the media. We meet at least three times each year to decide on any awards to be presented, plan for spring, fall, and winter educational activities, including annual dinner speaker, and make recommendations to the board regarding annual dinner recognition. When and where possible, the Chair attends professional learning opportunities as presented by the Pennsylvania Land Trust Association and the Land Trust Alliance.
