Local Climate Action Events this Saturday

It's not too late to register for the 2007 Virginia Climate Action Conference this Saturday at UVa -- it's shaping up to be a tremendous event. Seth Rosen did a nice write-up on the conference in Sunday's Daily Progress and City Council last week agreed to kick in $2,000 toward scholarships so students & others of limited means can attend for free. If you want one, contact VaClimateAction@hotmail.com.

The conference will wrap up with an energetic Step It Up! rally at the UVa Amphitheater from 4:45-5:45pm. Music, speakers, info., refreshments -- it'll be quite festive and family-friendly. Even if you can't make it to the conference, feel free to come just for the rally. Paul Ferguson (Chair of the Arlington County Board of Supervisors), Mike Tidwell (founder of the Chesapeake Climate Action Network), and Kathy Selvage (co-founder of Southern Appalachian Mountain Stewards) are just three of the conference presenters who will also be speaking at the rally. You won't want to miss it!
