Ben McMillan, who heads Rubber City Reuse, will bring us up to date on his efforts to address a long neglected environmtental problem, the colossal amounts of human foods that end up in landfills due to spoilage, poor organization and waste (including the veggies you left on your plate at the local hash house).  There must be a better way of dealing with leftovers and Ben thinks he has found it.

Mike Johnson, Chief of Conservation at Summit Metro Parks has an enlightening and valuable story to tell: how the park system converted the former Valley View golf course in Akron’s Merriman valley into its newest park – a park that connects Sand Run with Cascade Valley parks no less. Considerable planning was involved, as well a systematic effort to rely on native plants. If you have ever wondered just how a park, and its particulkar features comes into existence, you won’t want to miss this program.

Once again you have an opportunity to impress fellow Sierrans with pictures from your recent outdoor adventures. Bring a cd, thumb drive or a memory stick (Windows or Mac) with a few choice photos, and tell us what was distinctive, exciting, or simply restful about your activities! We’ll provide the projector, laptop, and screen. If you’ve been staying close to home, you can travel vicariously with other members. Always interesting and revealing.

Volunteer Opportunities

Here’s a great opportunity for alert, wide-awake, energetic, and committed environmentalists!

Akron Peninsula Road Cleanup. Picking up trash along two miles of Akron Peninsula Road in the CVNP is a long-standing PTG responsibility. We do it three or four times per  year on Saturday mornings. It takes at most two hours. A nice walk if nothing else. If you can help out, call or email Dan Nelson, 330-666-4246 or DMNelson@roadrunner.com
