Living Green in Lincoln Park Forum this Sunday!

I am thrilled to be a part of a great event this Sunday (5/16), The Living Green in Lincoln Park Residents Forum. It is from 1:30pm until 3:30pm at The Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum (2430 N. Cannon Dr.).

This event is free for all Lincoln Park residents, there will also
be
complimentary snacks and beverages provided by Limelight Catering as well
as some great raffle prizes (no cost to enter!).  The event was planned
and organized by Ken Labok of Children's Memorial Hospital, and I was
happy to help & participate in this effort to spread the green word
in Chicago!

The goal of The Living Green in Lincoln Park Forum is to help residents learn tips on how to live more sustainably, locate new resources for living green and learn a thing or two from some local professionals in the green world. There will be a pre-networking session with local Chicago businesses followed by a Q & A session with the following experts:
