Mining Heritage and AMD Issues
July 12 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 amSee event details
Join former Pennsylvania coal miner Van Wagner for interpretive program about the human story behind coal. Who were the people who mined (and still mine) coal? Where are the coal regions found? A little bit of music and a lot of history will make for a special program on the Susquehanna. Meanwhile, Bobby Hughes, the executive director of the Eastern PA Coalition of Abandoned Mine Reclamation, will offer a presentation of current issues related to Acid Mine Drainage (AMD).
