Virginia Conservation Network is hosting our annual Environmental Assembly
on September 9th and 10th
in Charlottesville, VA. Bringing together conservation leaders from across Virginia, the Environmental Assembly provides a forum for discussion on key environmental issues and an opportunity to strategize with like-minded individuals about the best ways to tackle threats to our natural environment.
This year’s Assembly will feature a lively evening reception; plenty of educational workshops; breakout sessions; and engaging field trips, including a pipeline hike, a kayaking trip down the Rivanna River, and a sustainable winery tour. The full event schedule can be found here.
We would love to have a stronger student presence at this event, as it is an excellent learning and networking opportunity with environmental organizations and legislators. Student tickets are $10 (the regular ticket price is $30), which covers the cost of the Friday evening reception and Saturday’s meals/programming. If you know of any students who would be interested in attending, please pass this invitation on to them. Please also pass this information along to any professors who are willing to share this invitation with their classes.
Please feel free to call me at Communications Manager Kelley Galownia, 804.644.0283 if you have any questions. We hope to see you in September!
