Sep 17: Air quality hike in Dead Man's Hollow

Join the Allegheny Land Trust's Environmental Education Team for an easy- to moderate-level hike at our Dead Man's Hollow Conservation Area.

This is a great opportunity to learn about the natural and mysterious features of this 450 acre green space. We will look for lichens and ozone sensitive species of plants.  Friends from GASP's Athletes United for Healthy Air program will tell us more about regional air quality, ways to reduce our exposure to air pollution and how each of us can be a champion for healthy air.
We will start at the Boston Ballfield parking area and Great Allegheny Passage (GAP) trailhead and restrooms.  Please wear appropriate shoes (sneakers/boots) and bring a water bottle.

1-3 p.m. at Boston Ballfield Park (1906 Donner Street, McKeesport, PA 15135).  Free and open to the public;  please register in advance here.

This activity is in association with AirSpace, a collaborative effort between GTECH and GASP to creatively engage Allegheny County residents with topics related to air quality and environmental justice.
