Lorax Conference, UMBC

Baltimore, Maryland

I am writing to inform you about the Lorax Conference being hosted at UMBC the weekend of May 3rd and 4th. The Conference will be on both environmental and social issues of our times, and a stream clean-up action event. In addition to that the campus's Ecofest! will be going on all day Saturday. The Conference's planners have coordinated with the Ecofest celebration so that the conference goers may take part in the Ecofest activities that will include
bands, speakers, games, and free giveaways. The Conference will begin at 10am on Saturday (breakfast will be at 9), although 9:30 is encouraged for registration. I have included the workshop topics and schedule, however the workshop topics are not limited to that, more are currently being added. I encourage everyone to sign up today, the registration fee is only $10 ($5 for UMBC students), and there will be group rates for groups attending with over 5 people! For anyone who is interested in additional information or housing please email kc3@umbc.edu
. Please forward this to anyone who would be interested!

Thanks ~Kristen Cevoli~
