Evansville becoming more Earth friendly 

For a long time, too much raw sewage was being released into the Ohio River and Pigeon Creek during significant rainstorms.  Evansville has taken an innovative “green” approach to this problem and one part of the solution has been the transformation of Bee Slough into a wetland that treats storm water in a natural and Earth friendly way.  

Water and Sewer Executive Director, Lane Young, and Wayne Montgomery, EWSU Capital Projects Manager, will explain this project as well as other green efforts in a presentation on Wed., July 26, 6:30 pm, at the downtown public library in Browning Rm B.  All are welcome.  
This event is hosted by Tri-State Creation Care.

Beekeeping by Myra Teal

Tuesday, June 13, at 6:00pm

Myra Teal has been involved in beekeeping and honey production for decades, and she is now a frequent presenter at beekeeping conferences in many states.  Her one-hour presentation will be outdoors near the Nature Center, weather permitting.  If the weather isn’t cooperating, we’ll meet inside the Nature Center. 

Myra will allow attendees to see and taste honey samples from 12 different states, plus she’ll bring along an observational hive that will allow attendees an opportunity to view firsthand the inner-workings of a hive.  This event is being co-hosted by Tri-State Creation Care and Wesselman Woods.
