Logan City plans to host a so-called “Green Futures Learning Series: A Pathway to Better Living.” The series begins on January 20 and continues on the third Wednesday of each month through June 15.
The city’s conservation coordinator Emily Malik says the purpose of the six-part lecture series is to give local residents a chance to learn more about air quality, renewable technologies, water conservation and quality, home energy savings and garbage and recycling–all from experts in the field.
Malik says she is excited about the way residents have responded to other environmental projects.
“Hopefully, this lecture series will be a hit among the public,” Malik says. “It will be open to anyone who wants to attend and learn. We figure it will be a non-pressure environment, we won’t let anyone sell things to them. They can just learn and take that knowledge to their house.”
Malik says the first lecture will be held Wednesday, January 20 starting at 6 p.m. at the Logan City Hall Conference Room. A panel of speakers will address air quality, health impacts of poor air quality and actions that can be taken to make improvements.
Featured speakers will be Dr.s Randy Martin and Roger Coulombe from Utah State University, Jordy Guth from Cache Clean Air Coalition and Logan High School’s Leaf Club.
