The family house, just as the snow started
I did make one stop today at the Pennypack Environmental Center in Northeast Philadelphia. This center, nestled into the woods that line the Pennypack creek, is a natural island in the sprawl that is Philadelphia. In speaking with Steve, Stephanie, and Peter, I learned that the center specializes in elementary and middle school environmental education. In an age where many municipalities are struggling financially, it is nice to see that Philadelphia has kept this environmental education operational. Maybe one day all citizens will be so responsible that environmental education is rendered unnecessary. Until that day comes, it is great to know that standard bearers such as the Pennypack Environmental Center will be there to help inform future generations as to their environmental responsibilities. More information can be found here and on the center's Facebook page.
LOTS more information coming later today!
