I'd like to share with you some very exciting events coming up...
Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods, will be in Leesburg March 14th and in Charlottesville March 15- each time to give a talk about nature-deficit disorder and how to best proceed in the future. Tickets are $12/adult and $8/student.
The Piedmont Environmental Council is proud to be hosting Mr. Louv as part our celebration of our 40th anniversary protecting and promoting open space and access to nature in Virginia's Piedmont. At each location, we are hosting a VIP Reception- a chance to mingle with our community's leading conservationists, educators, health care professionals, and Mr. Louv himself, while enjoying some hors d'oeuvres and drinks before his lecture. We also have some sponsorship opportunities still available- all sponsorships come with blocks of tickets and can be made in the name of a charity. Both options are tax-deductible and proceeds support our work protecting the Piedmont- including Richard Louv's visit. For more information about sponsorship, please contact Kate Hopkins firstname.lastname@example.org.
