2009 Summer Speaker Series at The Ecology Center

Our friends at the San Juan Capistrano Ecology Center are hosting the first ever Summer Speaker Series this summer to address the issue of Basic Needs – food, water, shelter, and clothing. Fulfilling these basic needs has an inherent impact on our communities and environment. Guest speakers will discuss how to make a positive environmental impact in how we choose to live our lives.

This will serve as a forum where the residents of Orange County can explore these crucial topics with cutting-edge thinkers from a variety of backgrounds:

June 18th: Food
Michael Besancon, Whole Foods Market

July 9th: Water
Emily Pilloton, Project H Design

August 13th: Shelter
Matthew Miller, Appropriate Architecture

August 27th: Clothing
Erik Joule, Levi’s
Johnny Schillereff, Element Skateboards
Roian Atwood, Sole Technologies
Derek Sabori, Volcom V.Co-logical Series

Join us for an evening of conversation, 6:30-9PM, wine and beer, and light fare.
Registration for these unique events is $15/members, $25/non-members. Guests can sign up via The Ecology Center's website, or call The Ecology Center at 949.442.4223.

If you’re not able to make this, we encourage you to do a quick google search to find and get involved with a local ecology center near you.
