Join us for our monthly EcoReps workshop featuring locals making a difference in sustainability and a free, homemade vegetarian lunch!
Our March 31st workshop will focus on the efforts underway to make our campus and our city more bird-friendly through reducing window strikes and increasing bird habitat. A workgroup of the UofL Sustainability Council has been meeting for nearly a year, to contribute to Louisville's application to the Urban Bird Treaty and to develop plans for gathering data about bird strikes on campus, programming to raise awareness, and strategies for addressing the problem. Come and learn how you can get involved in our citizen science project or become a paid student researcher to help us monitor bird strikes during migration season.
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. More info on EcoReps website. This spring, we continue our series of workshops each month on last Fridays at noon. All are welcome.
