The Pennsylvania Woodmobile is making a stop at the Old Economy Village on Friday, August 7. Old Economy Village Museum Educator Sarah Goodman says it's a traveling exhibit that shows the importance of state forests. Goodman says it focuses on what has happened in the past, when forests were over lumbered in the 1800s, and what is done to prevent that from happening again, by having parks and lands preserved. She says the stop at Old Economy Village is relevant because the Harmonist society relied on carpentry work during the 19th century. Also, day campers ages 6 to 12 at the Old Economy Village are learning about the importance of trees to the environment, with their camp theme as "Sapling, Lumberjacks and Furniture: The Case of the Missing Tree".
The Woodmobile will be parked at the intersection of 14th and Church Streets in Ambridge, and will be free to the public from 12 to 3pm, August 7.
