The Middle Susquehanna Riverkeeper Association is hosting a “Quiz & Cooking” trivia night and meal at the Montour Preserve Education Center from 6-8 p.m. on April 22.
“We have a full meal in the works thanks to donations from Wild for Salmon and Kathy’s Cuisine,” said Riverkeeper John Zaktansky. “We have a growing list of cool donations that will be used for quizzes and as door prizes thanks to the generous local businesses that support our work and the importance of protecting our river.”
The menu will include Wild for Salmon Feta with Dill or Garlic Salmon Burgers, Coconut Ginger Carrot Soup, Mediterranean Orzo Salad, Roasted Broccoli, Pumpkin Seed Pudding, chocolate chia with raspberries and Rocky River cookies.
Trivial questions will be related to the Susquehanna River and some of the issues it faces, taken from the association’s paperback “Sentinels of the Susquehanna: Volume 1”.
“Through our book and online through our blog and podcast series, we’ve published hundreds of stories, investigative reports and columns about important issues and the people who passionately protect our resources,” said Zaktansky. “We thought it would be a fun way to delve into some of these topics, have an open discussion, give out prizes and celebrate the spirit of Earth Day.”
Among the prizes are:
Voucher for a free kayak rental ($50 value) from Five Mountain Outfitters, Shickshinny
Two free passes for the upcoming season aboard the Hiawatha paddle boat, Williamsport
Gift certificate for Otto’s Bookstore, Williamsport
Two tickets for the fall season to the Weis Center for Performing Arts at Bucknell University. The season schedule will be published in August.
Advance purchase of the book is not necessary to prepare for the trivia component, but participants can purchase a copy on Amazon or order a copy from the Middle Susquehanna Riverkeeper Association by visiting www.middlesusquehannariverkeeper.org. The blog also includes links to study the material for free.
The event, held at 700 Preserve Road in Danville, costs $25 for a ticket or $45 per couple. To purchase tickets, go to middlesusquehannariverkeeper.org.
