Over the past year, the Daemen College Environmental Summit planning committee thought up what environmental topics and workshops would be of interest to Western New York home owners, students and the general public.
What did they come up with? A summit with local leaders presenting on housing issues, green space, conservation, community gardens, and health.
The theme for the 6th Annual Environmental Summit on Saturday, September 25th is: “This Land is Your Land: Reclaiming Your Home, Your Neighborhood, Your Community." Opening remarks will be made at 9 a.m. by Aaron Bartley, Executive Director of PUSH Buffalo. The topic for the opening is “Extreme Home Makeover: The Aftermath."
From 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. there will be exhibits on green spaces, conservation easements, lead and radon awareness, and community gardens.
Following the exhibits, Bartley will be joined by Michael Gainer from Buffalo ReUse and Brendan Mehaffy from the City of Buffalo Office of Strategic Planning for a panel discussion on “Reclaiming Your Neighborhood and Community."
Western New Yorkers are encouraged to come to the Summit to learn how to make a difference in their communities.
