Dear Empirical Operans-

We have to take a moment to heartily endorse this  workshop.

It’s educational presentations and trainings cover sustainability efforts in Land, Water, Air, Energy and Community. It connects you with excellent, motivated, and resourceful citizens committed to activist projects. And it connects you with resources from the City of Chicago’s Dept. of the Environment and Chicago Center for Green Technology.

Check it out; orientation sessions happening this week!
