A diverse mix of local sustainability efforts will be highlighted at the Corvallis Sustainability Coalition’s next Quarterly Gathering on Thursday, April 20, from 12 noon to 1:30 p.m. at the Corvallis-Benton County Public Library.
The gathering will feature brief presentations by three Coalition partners and one Coalition action team. The public is invited. Presentations by Catherine Fisher of Town & Country Realty, Bettina Schempf of Old Mill Center, and Tarah Campi of Cascades West Rideshare will highlight what their organizations are doing to help create a sustainable community – environmentally, socially, and economically. There will also be a presentation by Molly Monroe of the Coalition’s Natural Areas Action Team about that team’s current projects.
The gathering will include an opportunity for networking and information sharing by attendees, as well as delicious local refreshments from First Alternative Co-op.
