Earth Day Celebration

The Schuyler County Environmental Management Council (EMC) is working along side the Green Grand Prix to promote a day of fun and learning on Saturday, May 2nd noon - 3:00pm in Watkins Glen.  The focus of the educational piece is on renewable energy/energy conservation as well as stormwater management.  The event typically draws 400 plus people from a wide geographic range so this is a great opportunity to learn about renewable energy and energy conservation.  The Green Grand Prix gets national press and consist of a road rally for alternate fuels, diesel and efficient gas-powered vehicles.  There will be a speaker’s tent, several educational tents as well as food.
