PPL Supports Saucon Valley Outdoor Env. Ed. Center at “Launch Party”

Saucon Valley Foundation for Educational Innovation is embarking on a tremendous project that will bring hands-on outdoor environmental educational lessons to students in Saucon Valley School District (Hellertown, Pa.) without having to travel on a bus or take a field trip. They plan to develop the school grounds into an educational facility to study stream ecology, wetlands, birds, invasive plants, wind energy, solar energy and MORE!

At a Launch Party held in late April, students, teachers, administrators, community volunteers and local legislators gathered to officially kick of the construction of the center. The room was energized as passionate students and teachers discussed their plans to maximize the opportunities available to them right outside the classroom window.

Melinda Stumpf, PPL regional community relations director, and Alana Roberts, PPL community affairs specialist attended the event and provided $2,000 in funding on behalf of PPL through the Empowering Educators grant program.  We are pleased to be a part of this event and look forward to seeing this center develop as a resource for the school and community.
