Pacers Donate $10,000 to Berks Nature

A $10,000 donation from the Pagoda Pacers Athletic Club to Berks Nature will go towards construction and implementation of The Nature Place, an environmental education center to be built in Reading's Angelica Park over the next year. Members of the Pagoda Pacers presented the check to Berks Nature at Angelica Park Tuesday morning, near the future site of The Nature Place, which comes as an addition to the existing one-classroom, 800-square foot former boathouse in the park.
