Centennial Park pavilion #1
East Pershing St.
Spend a summer evening at Salem’s Centennial Park pavilion #1 (off of Pershing Street) learning about the mainstay of life we often take for granted: water. On July 27, 2016 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., Joshua Emanuelson and Jason Reynolds of Columbiana County Soil and Water Conservation District will use the 3D Enviroscape® Watershed demonstration model to teach us how stormwater runoff carries pollutants through a watershed to a pond, lake, river, bay or ocean and the best management practices to prevent this type of pollution from occurring. The overall watershed/stormwater concept is effectively communicated to all ages.
Areas of focus will be on residential, storm water and storm drains, forestry, transportation, recreation, agriculture, construction, and industry. Following the recent devastating flooding in West Virginia, this program is all the more valuable in increasing our knowledge and understanding of the power of water and our responsibility in dealing with it. Included in the program will be a demonstration teaching how to build a 55-gallon rain barrel to conserve rain water for use around your home.
This program is free of cost to attend and is open to the public. Registration is required online at www.salem.lib.oh.us or by calling the library at 330-332-0042 or Shane Franks at Salem Memorial building, 330-332-5512.
Educational and entertaining “Go Wild in the Park” programming is provided to the Salem community through the partnership of Salem Parks and Recreation Department and Salem Public Library.
