Wind Power: Is It Appropriate Everywhere?
Presentation by Laura Jackson
at Schlow Library, 211 South Allen Street, State College

Wind power improves the health of our environment and ourselves. It brings down the cost of energy and creates more jobs than power plants. However, Laura Jackson will present her analysis of proposed projects in Mifflin County that involve extensive ridge top removal and threaten endangered species. The potential of wind power blows us away — But is it appropriate everywhere?

Followup outings to this proposed site are in the planning stages for mid August (advanced, rocky trail) and late September (easier, to coincide with raptor migration).

Join us for this discussion, refreshments and time for some Sierra socializing.

About Moshannon Group Presentations

Our regular presentations feature speakers on important local conservation issues and outdoor adventures. Our presentations are usually held during the autumn, winter, and spring months.

Our preferred location is the community room at Schlow Centre Region Library, 211 South Allen Street in downtown State College. We occasionally hold events in other locations, such as the community meeting room at State College Borough Municipal Building, next door to the Schlow Library.
