Come and join forest Landowners, friends, farmers, conservationists, local businesses and MFA members for a green energy educational day atop Warrior Mountain in Allegany County. All are welcome on Saturday, May 22, 2010 from 9am to 4pm.

There will be demonstrations on several viable and operational green and renewable energy systems including small wind, solar, thermal and wood gasification. Also view water conservation, gathering, storage and pumping demonstrations. This is a great opportunity to meet with manufacturers and have questions answered about energy conservation products and hear from companies including Bergey Wind Power, Alternate Heating Systems, Stiebel Eltron, Mahoning Outdoor Furnace and ESP Insulation. Qualified contractors knowledgeable about equipment installation will be on hand.
