We have created a series of community events to celebrate Earth Day this year!
The main campaign of Earth Day 2019 is “Protect Our Species”, so we are leading with a Community Book Read and series of events focused on Protecting Perkasie’s Pollinators. Please pick up a copy of the book, or download it from amazon (free on kindle for amazon prime members) and we’ll hope to see you at one of these events. All events are free, but some of them do require advance registration (see below). Please call 215-257-5065 with any questions about this programming.
