Lehigh Valley Museum celebrates Earth Day

Lehigh Valley Heritage Museum will celebrate Earth Day with a presentation, at 1 p.m. Saturday, April 20, featuring a history of conservation in the United States.

“In our hectic, urbanized lives, we forget the fragility and beauty of nature and the ways in which our lives depend on the health of the planet,” said Joseph Garrera executive director of the museum. “Earth Day offers an opportunity to stop, reflect, and take action.”

Participants in the Heritage Museum program will discover a new appreciation for Planet Earth as they explore the inspiration provided by early nature writers and painters, as well as the contributions of later conservation workers. Admission to the program is free to members, $8 for adult nonmembers, and $3 for nonmember children.

The museum is located at 432 W. Walnut St., Allentown. Parking is available in the rear of the Museum, on the street, and in nearby lots. Visit
