EcoReps Lunch & Learn: Eco-RepsMaking Maple Syrup from UofL Trees (Pancake Party!)

NOTE NEW LOCATION: Ekstrom Library 2nd Floor Delphi Lab

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

This month, we'll enjoy a Pancake Party as we hear from those who have been tapping maple trees on UofL's campuses! Our guest speaker, David Barker, has been tapping trees and making his own syrup in Louisville for years. During the last two seasons, he has partnered with UofL to experiment with tapping trees on campus - on his own at Shelby Campus and on Belknap Campus as part of BIOL 104-15 - Laboratory for Introduction to Biological Systems. He will give a workshop on the process of tapping trees to make syrup as we all enjoy the delicious fruits of his labor!

The Sustainability Council’s EcoReps 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'll continue our series of in-person workshops each month on third Fridays at noon. Join us for lunch and bring your reusable plate, utensils, and cup to minimize waste! All are welcome. More info on EcoReps website.
