A group of volunteers from CEC Monroeville recently participated in a fundraising event with the Turtle Creek Watershed Association (TCWA) and the Borough of Irwin in southwestern Pennsylvania. The annual event aims to promote environmental awareness in the community.
Money raised was split between the TCWA and the Borough. The TCWA will use the money to address one of the largest untreated abandoned mine drainage discharges in Pennsylvania, located on Brush Creek in Irwin. The Borough uses the money to support efforts to obtain environmental grants for various community improvements.
At the event, our Monroeville team members utilized an interactive watershed model as a hands-on public demonstration. The EnviroScape model illustrated the concepts of watershed protection and demonstrated how stormwater runoff carries pollutants through the watershed to streams, lakes, and more. The event also included the third annual rubber ducky race. Participants purchased rubber duckies for $5. In all, about 250 ducks were sponsored and entered the race.
Jason Fronczek, Dave Olson, and Erin Matthews represented our Monroeville office at the event. Jason has served on the board of the TWCA for two years.
