Here’s an opportunity to learn about forest ecosystems AND to see the future site of the Rachel Carson Ecovillage.
The newly forming EcoVillage at Chatham’s Eden Hall campus is hosting a free, guided eco-tour this coming Sunday, July 19th. The walk will take place along woodland trails at safe social distances. The event is open to anyone who is interested, and is suitable for families.
The eco-tour begins at 10:30 AM at the water tower parking lot on the campus, and will be finished by noon.
Rachel Carson EcoVillage, Pittsburgh’s first ecovillage, is a new way of life built on an idea we’re all familiar with—a neighborhood where we know our neighbors.
The ecovillage will be built on the Eden Hall Campus of Chatham University, where there will be opportunities to participate in campus activities and contribute to the university’s advancement of sustainability. The legacy of Rachel Carson, one of Chatham’s most well-known graduates, inspires us to embrace what we call “ecologically creative living”, believing that people and nature can thrive together. The ecovillage will build connections one another and to the land.
