UPCOMING SIERRA CLUB PPG PROGRAMS
July: No Meeting (Summer Break)
August 12th: Dr. Robbie Cox, presenting on the “50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act”. Dr. Cox, past chair of the N.C. chapter of the Sierra Club will review the history and evolution of the Wilderness Act and its impact on North Carolina.
September 9th: Zak Keith, organizer for the N.C. Chapter of the Sierra Club will speak on “Legislative Action in Raleigh” bringing us up to date on recently passed environmental legislation, goals for 2015, and the Sierra “Lobby Core” (a grassroots effort to bring our voice to key legislators).
October 14th: Bronwin Corry, Director of Sustainability for Guilford College will present on how Guilford College is “Creating the Environmentalists of the Future”. Unlike so much of the doom and gloom environmental news of the day, Bronwin will fascinate you with the myriad of sustainable programs currently in place at Guilford College and the commitment by students to make Guilford one of the greenest colleges in the country. Their current plan anticipates making Guilford totally sustainable in the not to distant future.
