Black Swamp Conservancy to Host Earth Day Presentation

PERRYSBURG – Black Swamp Conservancy is inviting the public to commemorate Earth Day by attending “Life in the Western Basin: an Earth Day Conversation” on Wednesday, April 22nd. The program, which is free and open to the public, will take place at the W.W. Knight Nature Preserve in Perrysburg, starting at 7:00 in the evening.

Black Swamp Conservancy, a northwest Ohio land conservation organization, is bringing together three local experts to speak on our great local resource – Lake Erie and its watershed. Presenters include retired outdoors editor for the Toledo Blade, Steve Pollick; environmental educator and advocate for conservation and land preservation, Cheryl Harner; and University of Toledo Professor of Ecology, Christine Mayer. The presentations will be followed by questions from the audience and open discussion.

“A lot of attention has been placed on our watershed lately, and not always in the most positive light,” states Sarah Brokamp, Conservancy advancement coordinator. “We wanted to offer a public program which reminds us how fortunate we are to have this amazing natural resource.”
