Etna adds a new walking trail

Sustainability Stroll

Thanks to the efforts of our neighbor Judith Koch who secured an Environmental Education grant from the PA Department of Environmental Protection, Etna now has another marked walking trail that will guide pedestrians past many of Etna's green initiatives! Judith conducted a survey in 2020 and heard back from residents about what Etna places represent "sustainability" to them. The places identified by respondents were quite an impressive collection of green infrastructure installations completed by Etna Borough, such as the beautiful and innovative streetscape along Butler Street, as well as the rain gardens on Freeport and Walnut Streets. The trail also highlights our beloved community garden, the Garden of Etna, and the new solar canopy and charging station just outside. Of course, it takes a swing by the Dougherty Nature Trail and meanders along Pine Creek. The trail ends at the Etna EcoPark as a destination for both gathering with neighbors and learning about sustainability.
