Where: The Cottage Grove Armory, located at 628 E. Washington Avenue (at the corner of Washington and S. 7th Street)
Please join us for the Climate Action Town Hall on Saturday, May 14th, at the Cottage Grove Armory from 9:30am to 1:00pm for community members and local officials to participate in a forum on ways the City of Cottage Grove can reach the goal of being carbon neutral by the year 2030. The event will include speakers, information tables, and discussion sessions to work on possible solutions.
Speaking at the event will be Tao Orion of Resilience Permaculture Design, LLC, and author of Beyond the War on Invasive Species: A Permaculture Approach to Ecosystem Restoration and Mark Nystrom, Lane County’s Climate Strategist. They will be discussing topics such as the science of climate change, the impacts of climate change, and how to develop the climate actions and policies to help our community adapt while we work towards finding solutions.
The town hall will be an interactive event where the residents learn more about Climate Change and what it means for Cottage Grove and participate in a community conversation on how Cottage Grove can become a more resilient and greener community. Activities include presentations on climate impacts on the Willamette Valley, climate action plans, and grassroots projects. A portion of the day’s schedule will be for attendees to participate in 'breakout sessions' to brainstorm ideas to improve our city’s carbon footprint and become more resilient in the face of a changing climate.
Hosted by: Climate Action Cottage Grove, EcoGeneration, Elder’s Climate Action, Forest Web, and Sustainable Cottage Grove
