Potomac Community Village Invites the Public to Mark Earth Day with Learning, Action and Clean Up
Potomac, MD: Many seniors believe preserving the environment is a top priority and participate in environmentally friendly practices, but fewer are hopeful that their efforts will have lasting impact, according to a recent report from the Mather Institute. * The seniors of Potomac Community Village (PCV) are hoping to change that!
In partnership with Elders for Climate Action, PCV is hosting “Honoring Earth Day: Learning and Action” to share the latest science on climate change, to learn about key legislative state initiatives to protect it, and offer practical solutions that EACH individual can take to make a difference. Speakers: Bruce Davis (Climate Reality Project), Leslie Wharton (Elders Climate Action) and Frances Stewart (Elders Climate Action) will lead a dynamic panel to inform and challenge all participants to take action today to start protecting our planet.
“We are excited to partner with Elders Climate Action (ECA) who are leaders in trying to end the climate crisis and create a sustainable future for our children and grandchildren,” says Sylvia Diss, PCV and ECA member and organizer of the panel. “Many seniors care deeply about protecting the environment but are overwhelmed or feel hopeless about what to do. This event will empower them with knowledge and inspire them to take action!”
Honoring Earth Day: Learning and Action will be held Thursday, April 20, from 3-5 p.m. at the Potomac Community Center, 11315 Falls Road, Potomac, MD. Free and open to all. Registration is encouraged through the PCV Help Desk at 20854HelpDesk@gmail.com or 240-221-1370.
PCV members will “take action” following the panel by joining with the C&O Canal Trust in its Earth Day cleanup on Saturday morning, April 22, 9 am – 12 noon, to pick up trash, paint or remove invasive plants.
