Biodigester Project in Lake Placid: A free lecture and discussion by Tammy Morgan, LPCHS Science teacher
Wednesday, April 12, 7-8:30
North Country Community College, Mulholland Hall, Room S-19
Tammy Morgan, science teacher at Lake Placid High School, has spearheaded the biodigester project at Lake Placid’s Recycling and Transfer center. This project intends to remove food and vegetation waste from landfills and turn them into energy, liquid fertilizer and compost. Funded by a grant and supported by the village, this project expects to show an income from what was an expense.
A biodigester is a device that digests organic materials, like food waste or manure, and turns it into a gas that can be used for cooking, electricity, or heating. Visit this page for more information about biodigesters. More information about Ms. Morgan’s project is here.
Future presentations by other local educators include the topics of Economics as if People Mattered; LGBTQ Issues; the Electoral College, Gerrymandering and Redistricting; Political Identity, and Climate Change. These lectures are provided to educate and inform people so that they can make reasonable decisions in responding to the current political situation.
