Check out the Free Bookmarks at the Dunbar Libraries and The Sustainability and Environmental Summer 2011 Reading List—Literally, Check them out!

Many of the books and DVD’s on this list are award winners and best sellers by top authors. There is something here for everyone—history buffs to business majors, engineers to ecologists and even some for the younger crowd. There’s even DVD’s if you don’t feel like reading today. Be sure to check out the entire list for interesting reading for this summer and beyond!

A very special prize for readers of 7 or more of the books listed here. Want to read a biography of the smart, brave woman who was the igniting spark for the environmental movement in the 1960’s?  Anything by or about Rachel Carson would be on my list of favorites. And be sure to check out Hunt Brown’s favorites, too.  You can find these at the Dunbar Library or a public library near you or purchase them on line. You may also want to email me at sustainability@wright.edu because many of the items on this list can be borrowed this summer from the Office of Sustainability.

Your daily actions speak louder than words.

As the end of the Fall 2014 term approaches, let's take a look back and a glance forward.

The Campus Community Garden has been cleared now with the last of the potatoes dug up this week thanks to Joshua Monroe helping me. I then delivered 30 lbs. of red and Yukon gold potatoes to the Good Neighbor Food Pantry in Dayton.

The space that has been the Garden for the last three summers will be converted to a Pollinator Garden next spring and help to educate the campus community about pollinators, their role in nature and in our food supply and why we should protect them from chemical poisons and habitat loss.

Other recent events included the Montgomery County Food Summit on November 5th. Over 200 people from around the Miami Valley attended this conference to learn about Local Organic Food Production and to discuss how the Dayton area can further develop a Food Hub to increase the amount of food products grown and consumed right in our area.
Check out the photo shoot.

And as we move into Spring Term 2015, we need to get geared up for Recyclemania and the Campus Conservation Nationals coming up in January.

Have a Safe and Happy Break!
