Jennings Environmental Education Center

We began by learning an abridged history of mining in western Pennsylvania. Needless to say, mining was a very dangerous profession. However, mining was very important to the industrial revolution. In addition, iron mining was and still is affecting the environment. Run off water from the iron mines is destroying the health of local waterways, such as the streams and ponds of Jennings State Park. We learned how Jennings is taking passive action to maintain the environment in the park. Now we understand the necessary steps to protect the environment from the very real dangers of iron mines.
