The Center for Economic and Environmental Development is Allegheny College’s leading environmental organization. CEED aims at, “creating innovative approaches to environmental stewardship, environmental education, and regional revitalization.” Their goal is to work alongside local partners and establish a green initiative within the community. One of CEED’s more successful projects was designing a storm water management system at the Interstate 79 interchange in Meadville. CEED is also in charge of the sculptures made of road signs alongside route 322 in Meadville. If you are looking to get involved in helping Meadville embrace an environmental initiative, CEED is perfect organization to involve with.

Welcome Allegheny!

Welcome to Kasey Hinkle, Jake Szoszorek, and Wyatt Good’s ES110 environmental media blog. On the blog we have provided links to informative environmental webpages. We have included everything from large environmental organizations such as EPA to the Allegheny campus linebacker. During our period developing the blog we learned that the internet is an extremely useful and expansive database for information regarding all facets of environmental science. We hope that students will visit our blog and learn about the many ways the world wide web can be a tool for progressing environmental initiatives. We found that with a little interest, and even less effort, anybody can, and everybody should, use the web to get informed and get involved with saving our planet.
