Living Lightly 2016

Living Lightly logoThe 10th annual Living Lightly Fair, held on September 17, 2016, on the Minnetrista campus, was a great success, with 2,360 visitors!

To learn more about the day's events, visit www.livinglightlyfair.org

The Robert Cooper Audubon Society--which was the original sponsor of the fair in 2007--remains a proud supporter of the fair each year. Thanks to everyone who visited our booth!

NOTE: Rather than holding the regular fair in September 2017, Living Lightly is engaging in community outreach activities dedicated to sustainable, local food production. Details to come!

A new look!

We have a new logo, a new website, and a new newsletter name! For a dozen years our logo was a Carolina Wren drawing created by art professor Sally Myers, and our newsletter was named The Chat. Shelbie Freeman

But we've begun a new era with a Cooper's Hawk logo created by BSU student (now alumna) Shelbie Freeman, who interned for our chapter. She also created our new chapter website.

The new name of our newsletter is Cooper's Talk, coined by board member Sarah Fischer.

Thanks to both Shelbie and Sarah for their creative talents!
