"What's Up in Monona?" -- Green Tuesdays next week

Green Tuesdays: Films & Lectures on Sustainability
March 9 -- 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm
Monona Public Library

"What's Up in Monona?"

Hear about the status of sustainability in our community from the people helping to make it more resilient, efficient, and green. Peter Sobol, member of the Monona Grove School Board; Pat Marsh, Monona's City Administrator; Robin Schmidt, our Dane County Supervisor; Alanna Medaris, from the Aldo Leopold Nature Center; and a TNS Monona representative will describe efforts that are underway and those being planned for the future.

What's happening with the school district's energy efficiency upgrades? Has the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act meant anything for our area? How will the Regional Transportation Authority work and what will it do for us? When will the expansion of the Aldo Leopold Nature Center be completed and what will be in it? You'll find answers to these questions and more, and be able to pose your own.

About Green Tuesdays

Green Tuesdays: Films & Lectures on Sustainability is a community exchange of information and ideas on sustainable living brought to you by The Natural Step Monona and the Monona Public Library.

Upcoming presentations: the film Mama Earth (3/30), and "Preparing Our Communities for the Future, Now" from last November's "Bringing Bioneers to Wisconsin" conference. Bryant Moroder of Sustain Dane will share this video from the conference and the Bioneers story (4/13).

Green Tuesdays are from 6:30 to 8:00, with engaging and fun conversations often pushing the conclusion a bit past that hour. The series is free and open to the public. Sessions are on the second and fifth Tuesdays of the month, from September through May. The Monona Public Library is at 1000 Nichols Road.

Whole Foods serves treats. Attendees are encouraged to come early for delightful food and drink.

Green Tuesdays: Films are supported by the Dane County Environmental Council.
