Green Drinks Bloomington is a lively, informal social networking event for people from all walks of life who are interested in making a greener world. Folks gather every month to share libations and ideas, discuss, debate, explore and make new friends and business connections.
On Wednesday, August 26 at 6 pm Green Drinks will host a panel of representatives from four local environmental groups– Sycamore Land Trust, Sassafras Audubon, Indiana Forest Alliance and Citizens’ Climate Lobby—each giving a brief presentation about current projects, activities and how the public can get involved.
Wendy Anderson, “a birder at heart” and secretary of the Sassafras Audubon Society (SAS), is in the graduate Environmental Science program at SPEA.
Katrina Folsom, Sycamore Land Trust Communication Director, describes falling in love with the land-trust model when she moved to Bloomington five years ago to begin a masters program at SPEA. She has been helping Sycamore save land ever since.
Audrey Moore, the Indiana Forest Alliance’s (IFA) Administrative and Communications Coordinator, a self-described “passionate forest-lover,” has been active with IFA for five years, serving first as a board member before joining the staff.
Marcia Veldman, State Coordinator for Citizens’ Climate Lobby, is an advocate working to build the political will for a stable climate.
Green Drinks Bloomington is held the 4th Wednesday of every month from 5:30 – 7:30 pm at the Banquet Facility of the Upland Brewing Company. There’s a $5 suggested donation, some food will be provided. To receive a monthly reminder, write firstname.lastname@example.org. To learn more about Green Drinks visit www.greendrinks.org.
