We can’t wait to see all of your friendly faces on June 22nd at Ryerson Station State Park! DRYerson is a very special event for us, as much of our work has focused on defending and protecting this beautiful and important piece of Greene County – and its only state park – so that it can be enjoyed for generations to come!

Please join us in Pavilion #2 of the Park, beginning at 1 p.m. A map of the park and its general location can be found here. Check in at the registration table when you arrive to be entered in the drawings for door prizes!

There will be live entertainment with the lovely and talented Bree Otto, and fun and games for both adults and kids.

We will be serving picnic- and cookout-style food and drinks, including snow cones and cotton candy! Reusable foodservice will be provided by Our Children Our Earth: Toys, Silks & Eco-Goods so that we can avoid as much waste as possible.

As you can see on this map, there are numerous hiking trails. Feel free to explore the park while you’re there. You can even bring your furkids, but kindly bring them on leashes so that they don’t disturb other attendees.

Let us know you are coming to the event by registering on this page. Call us at the office (724-229-3550) if you would like to volunteer or want to know more about the event! We hope to see all of you there! Also, stay connected to other event plans at our Facebook event page!

She grew up in rural Washington County, has family in both Washington and Greene Counties, and has always loved animals and spending time outdoors. A first-generation and nontraditional college student, her deep interest in human beings and ecology led her to earn a Ph.D. in anthropology from the University of Pittsburgh in 2012. She has worked on research projects and taught at the university level in the U.S. and in field schools in Latin America. The knowledge and experience she gained increased her concern for environmental and social justice issues, which she believes are best addressed at the local level, or from the "bottom up." Lisa works to understand issues from the local to the global, seeks to make a positive difference, and loves to talk to people about what interests or concerns them. In her free time, she enjoys reading, spending time with her family, furkids, and friends, and walking in the woods with her dogs. Contact Lisa at lisa@coalfieldjustice.org.
