The Board of Directors of the Buffalo Weather Experience Center (BWEC) will host a “Meet and Greet” informational session at the Market Arcade, 617 Main Street on Friday, March 7 from noon to 1PM.
Those interested in joining the growing effort to construct a state-of-the-art weather science center on Buffalo’s waterfront will have the opportunity to see a presentation on the Weather Center initiative, get an update on progress to date, view renderings of the BWEC vision, and learn how to get involved.
The Mission of the Buffalo Weather Experience Center (BWEC) is to engage, educate and excite visitors of all ages about weather’s impact on everyday life as well as its importance to the future of our planet. Through interactive, entertaining exhibits, awe-inspiring programs and unforgettable weather-related experiences, the Center strives to remind us all of the power, wonder and science of weather.
According to Craig Turner, steering committee member, “We want to get people excited about this and we need to form a group of volunteers because we’re moving along at breakneck speed, and realize we need more hands.
We’ll be incorporated in a few weeks, and should have facility study done by end of June. Then sometime this summer we’ll establish a not-for-profit status so we can do fundraising. We have set up an executive committee, an exhibits committee and we’re looking to form a group for marketing and finance.”
In addition, Turner said, “We’re taking in ideas as much as possible. We have tons of ideas that the exhibits committee is going through and picking out the gems.”
Beverages will be served. Attendees are invited to bring a brown bag lunch. Street parking is available on Washington Street.
Be a part of it.
