A grass-roots anti-fracking group in Medina County is now invited to participate in the county's Earth Day celebration on Saturday.
The Concerned Citizens of Medina County had been rejected as too controversial for Earth Day by a county committee last month.
Organizer Kathy Jones said she met on Tuesday with Tom James of the Medina County Park District and her group is back in as a participant.
She said she was very pleased by the county's reversal.
Her group has also been invited to participate in the county's speakers program, she said.
The Earth Day event will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Buffalo Creek Retreat in Guilford Township.
