Friends of Princeton Open Space, the local nonprofit I used to work for, is having its annual meeting this weekend. The meeting itself is a succinct review of what FOPOS has been up to over the past year, and then there's a talk, refreshments, and a nature walk, all at beautiful Mountain Lakes. As the press release says,
"The meeting is free and open to the public, but reservations are requested by April 15th; RSVP to Friends of Princeton Open Space, 609-921-2772.
Shana S. Weber, Director, Office of Sustainability at Princeton University, will be the featured speaker at the 2015 annual meeting of the Friends of Princeton Open Space at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 19. Her talk,“Sustainability Uncovered: The Gritty Underbelly of Meaningful Environmental Endeavors at Princeton University,” will focus on the unprecedented levels of sustainability and environmental stewardship integrated into the University’s current strategic planning and visioning process.
The meeting will take place at Mountain Lakes House, 57 Mountain Avenue in Princeton. Dr. Weber will speak after a brief business meeting at which new trustees will be elected. Refreshments will be served. A walk through Mountain Lakes and adjacent Tusculum led by FOPOS naturalist Adam Schellhammer will follow Dr. Weber’s talk."
