What we're about

This group is for anyone interested in helping to make Albany and the surrounding areas more sustainable. The secondary objective is to have FUN and socialize with like-minded individuals. Possible meetups include: neighborhood cleanups, gardening, planting trees/bulbs, environmental lobbying, trail and river clean-ups, community garden planning, protesting, environmental education, beekeeping, convincing restaurants and businesses to buy and sell locally, graffiti removal/mural painting, movie nights, canning classes, invasive plant removal, bike refurbishing/tune-ups, electronics recycling, camping, "green drinks" discussions, discouraging pesticide use in parks, neighborhood beautification, volunteer weatherization projects, and more!

The first event would probably be a get-together at a cafe to talk about future meetups.

I (almost!) have a BS in Environmental Studies, so I have some abilities to bring to the table. If anyone else has any skills or ideas that may be useful to the group, please send me a message or post on the message board.

Everyone is welcome to join! Looking forward to transforming Albany into a more sustainable and environmentally conscious community with you!
