The Nature Conservancy & MiND TV Present a Month of Environmental Programming
For Immediate Release
Philadelphia, PA | April 06, 2010
MiND TV and The Nature Conservancy are partnering to bring the Greater Philadelphia region a month-long celebration of environmental stewardship, sustainability and awareness through the broadcast of eight cutting edge, hour-long documentaries and 22 new 5-minute, community created programs about environmental and sustainability efforts.
This month-long celebration will culminate with a free community screening and discussion event on April 14th, presented at the Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education. This event features a selection of new 5-minute programs on topics ranging from eco-conscious construction to the premiere of The Nature Conservancy’s 5-minute program, Letting the Delaware River Run.
“The programs featured in this event capture the good work of so many area environmental non-profits, as well as the spirit of our community toward improving our regional environment,” said Howard Blumenthal, MiND TV’s CEO. “We are honored to be able to share such important work with our audience.”
Following the screening, Conservation Scientist Su Fanok (The Nature Conservancy), Brendan Isaac Jones (Greensaw Design & Build) and Maya K. van Rossum (Delaware River Keeper Network), and others will take questions about their films, and their work.
