Pennsylvania’s Green Amendment: Celebrating Half A Century of Environmental Rights | Reception

May 15, 2021 1:00PM—4:00PM


Ned Smith Center

Are you aware of your environmental rights? Are you aware of who takes care of this heritage on your behalf? While this is a task for every one of us, legally the State is the caretaker of this heritage. More specifically, but not exclusively, it is the four resource management agencies that are featured in this once-in-a-lifetime exhibit at the Ned Smith Center for Nature & Art. They are the Departments of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) and Environmental Protection (DEP), the Game Commission (PGC) and the Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) and they are collaborating with the Ned Smith Center for Nature and Art (NSCNA) to produce an exhibit that celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the passage of Pennsylvania’s Environmental Rights Amendment, a.k.a. The Green Amendment!

Don’t miss this amazing exhibit that brings together the NSCNA, DCNR, DEP, PGC, and the PFBC and melds their work into one gallery, showcasing all these organizations do for you and how they celebrate The Green Amendment every day of the year!

The exhibit will be held in the Olewine Gallery at the Ned Smith Center and will run from April 21st through August 21st. A Reception will be held May 15th from 1pm to 4pm where you will be able to speak with members of each organization as well as the author of the ground breaking amendment, Franklin L. Kury!

Any all Covid-19 regulations will be followed when inside the Ned Smith Center galleries.
