Science Center to sponsor free Conservation Day
Published: Thursday, Jan. 10, 2013, 8:58 p.m.
Duquesne Light and the Carnegie Science Center are sponsoring a free Conservation Day with environmentally themed programming on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Jan 21.
All visitors will be given free admission, a free Omnimax film and free parking at the North Shore site.
The Omnimax film is “Coral Reef.” Two live, theater shows, “Home Makeover: Green Edition” and “Captain Green's Time Machine,” also will be part of the festivities.
The live shows are part of the center's Science on the Road program, which is taken to schools.
“Martin Luther King Day is a great time to focus on community, and we're excited to offer a day of fun and learning with a special focus on conservation,” says Ann Metzger, co-director of the science center.

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
