Chester County Environment Alliance meeting Sept. 14

On Sept. 14, the West Chester Green Team met productively for over 2 hours with our environmental friends in the Chester County Environment Alliance (CCEA), an umbrella organization formed with almost 30 of Chester County’s local environmental organizations–and still growing!

“Like” the CCEA public Facebook page to stay up to date on local meetings, other groups you might find of interest, and upcoming events like the Clean Energy Open House Tour on October 19.

The Chester County Environment Alliance brings the representatives of its groups together three times a year to discuss the issues affecting our environment, help each other amplify our messages, coordinate events and campaigns, and use our resources jointly to help our shared mission to preserve and protect our environment and encourage sustainable choices in everyday life.

Please spread the word about this growing initiative as we work together with our friends and neighbors to preserve our environment on so many worthy fronts.

Green Team summer interns’ presentation

On Sept. 11, the West Chester Green Team’s 3 highly effective and hard-working summer interns—from left to right Kara Thorpe, Paige Vermeulen, and Courtney Bodle—described their accomplishments since May to the audience at the West Chester University Sustainability Research and Practice Seminar. All stressed not only what they got done (much of which shows up on this web site) but also the learning experience and how it oriented them to new ideas.
