April was a busy month for the SCA River Town Outreach Corps. For me it started in Philadelphia at the National Brownfields Conference. There I learned about Brownfield sites and how to develop those sites, particularly on rivers for community use as a green space. When I returned I focused on conducting research to learn as much as I could about California and the Mon Valley. The research included a business directory and town report for California and also real estate values for the Mon Valley. This was a good learning experience to teach me new things about the area. We were also assigned to organize the 32nd Annual Albert Gallatin Regatta Parade in Point Marion, PA on May 28. This was something I am new at and am embracing the parade planning as a great challenge.
