Greetings Neighbors, Vendors, and Organizations, The Mt. Lebanon Environmental Team (LeboGreen) truly missed celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day with you in 2020 but we have a fantastic, virtual celebration planned for 2021 ... Virtual Earth Day 2021 in Mt. Lebanon begins at NOON on Thursday, April 22, 2021, and runs, virtually, forever! Our goal by offering a virtual Earth Day 2021 celebration in Mt. Lebanon is to inspire and to educate our community about all things “green.” Please join us. Our Story Map will include FUN for all age groups. We are creating a GIS Story Map, which will connect visitors to our YouTube Channel. There, our entire community will be able to view educational and inspirational information provided by vendors, artists and nonprofit organizations. This Channel will be public and available in perpetuity after NOON on April 22nd. We will divide the Story Map into sustainability topic areas such as: energy, water, stormwater, waste, air quality, human health, wellness, local partners, art, music, etc. These topic areas will link to various sustainability organizations' websites and will feature a 5-10 minute video introducing the organizations' mission or vision, services and/or products. There will also be Activity Tent areas, which will feature longer 20-30 minute educational videos or workshops relevant to sustainability topic areas. The Activity Tents will offer composting and rain barrel workshops, which will include compost bins and rain barrels. Registration will be required for these workshops directly through the Pennsylvania Resources Council (PRC) https://prc.org/programs/conservation-workshops/ . Please reach out, via the links below, for additional information on how to create Your Sustainability Story for inclusion in the Story Map. In case you are not familiar with our past work, please note that LeboGreen is a group of Mt. Lebanon citizen volunteers devoted to conserving energy, water and waste in our community. We work with residents, elected officials, institutions, businesses, nonprofits and the Mt. Lebanon Environmental Sustainability Board to educate the local community and to encourage the implementation of sustainable strategies. The Team responds to global and local economic, social and environmental challenges; to human health needs; and to reducing the effects of climate change on our community and on our neighbors.
