Thank you to all who attended the free Invasive Species Training during the month of July...the experts on Invasive Species were helpful and informative...we were very fortunate here in the Finger Lakes to have such a great free training program available to us to help mitigate the spread of invasive species. Also thank you to those who attended Owasco Lake Day at Emerson Park on June 26th. Every year the celebration gets bigger...and who wants to pass up an opportunity for fun on our beautiful lake! Plus the information and opportunities to become actively involved seem endless. And also a thank you to those who attended the Honeywell Tour of the Onondaga Lake Clean up Site on May 16th. This is the biggest lake clean-up project currently underway in the United State so it was a terrific event that provided a rare local opportunity to hear about its progress of the lake clean up. It gives us all hope that we will indeed have a healthy lake once again in our lifetime. And a special thank you to Frank DeOrio the lead project designer.

After a brief summer break we are back in the sustainable learning mode for the Fall. And looking back so far 2013 has started out strong for Green Drinks Auburn....with the Invasive Species Training sessions in July, Owasco Lake Day in June, our tour of the Honeywell Onondaga Lake Clean Up site in May, the Watkins Glen Field trip in April to the Green Grand Prix and with the help of our new friends from Sustainable Skaneateles we observed "EARTH HOUR" in March.
And after Auburn Green Drinks' great re-start with four events in 2012...the August 16th meeting at the new Hilton Gardens Inn...the September 19th tour of Welch Allyn's LEED certified plant with IGNITE...and our October 18th meeting at the Pavilion with the latest fuel efficient vehicles to hit the market and our special Green Grand Prix guest from Watkins Glen and a November 8th field trip to visit our Green Drink neighbors in Syracuse NY....its been an exciting 2013.
A special Thank You to all who have attended either these special events or our regular monthly meetings to date. And we look forward to participation from any and all who want to make Auburn a truly "green" community. Auburn has a real depth of "green" talent and interest in improving sustainability. So we look forward to your participation and to seeing you at the Alternative Energy Tour on October 4th and many future events as well!!

Kick Back....Learn, Network
GOAL: A monthly meet and greet for people who have a common interests in green or sustainable practices in the Auburn NY area. It's a time to perhaps plan field trips or other activities with people who share an interest in learning about how to live well in our future green economy. Interests are varied, but that just means there's more to learn! So walk, ski, bike, sled, bus or take a car (while petrol is still cheap enough to do that) and come visit! Perhaps you can throw around some green ideas or maybe just have a drink and unwind a bit. Saving the world is hard work after all. Either way, hope to see you there!
WHO: Anyone thinking about or working on environmental issues or studying them as a career or hobby.
WHY: Fun, contacts, alcohol (or not), info, gossip, inspiration, business and pleasure. Just go up to someone and say "are you green?", and you'll be made welcome.
