Santarsiero Announces $3,000 Award to Snipes Farm for Education Program on Water Quality
State Senator Steve Santarsiero (D-10) announced that Snipes Farm and Education Center received a $3,000 mini grant through the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Environmental Education Grant Program.
Snipes Farm, located in Falls Township, will use the grant to implement the program “Where Does Stormwater Go? Linking a School, a Town and a Farm.” Through the program, high school students will explore increased rain volumes stemming from climate change and stormwater runoff impacts on water quality, and how they can effect change in the quality of their community’s environment.
“Hands-on learning is such a valuable part of education, and I am pleased to see Snipes Farm receive this grant to benefit students in our community,” said Sen. Santarsiero. “Climate change is an issue of critical importance to our future, and I am excited to see the work that both Snipes and the students will achieve toward improving the quality of our local environment.”
