Bill JohnsonJoin us for our monthly EcoReps Lunch & Learn workshop featuring a free vegetarian lunch and locals making a difference in sustainability!

To kickoff the spring series on Friday, Jan. 31st, our guest speaker will be Bill Johnston, Principal Geologist at Linebach-Funkhouser, a local environmental consulting group.

He will talk with us about brownfield restoration projects he's been involved in, including UofL's own work to transform the Floyd Street corridor through Belknap campus from a contaminated parking lot into a children's playground, running track, and world-class athletic facilities.

Mr. Johnston leads LFI’s environmental due-diligence programs pertaining to commercial/industrial properties, and is an expert in the assessment/remediation of contaminated sites. Mr. Johnston has 24 years of experience, is a registered Professional Geologist in KY, IN, and GA, is a certified UST professional, and has worked on projects throughout the United States. Prior to joining LFI, Mr. Johnston was a Principal with an international environmental engineering firm. He has a Bachelor’s degree in Geology from North Carolina State University and a Master of Business Administration from Indiana University Southeast.

The Sustainability Council’s EcoRepEco-Reps logos program is designed to move students, faculty & staff beyond talk to action for a more sustainable UofL! We provide basic training & resources, service opportunities, and leadership positions as a point-person & peer-to-peer advocate for sustainability. This spring, we continue our series of in-person workshops each month on last Fridays at noon in Ekstrom Library room W210. Join us for lunch and bring your reusable plate, utensils, and cup to minimize waste! All are welcome. More info on EcoReps website.
