With support from our partners, the Center for Land Use and Sustainability hosts a biennial field conference to highlight sustainability related issues in the region. This conference is open to anyone interested in learning more about our region including community members, municipal officials, county planners, conservation practitioners, and university staff, students, and faculty.
The cost to participate was $35 per person to support lunch, refreshments, transportation, and organizational costs. This conference was a wonderful opportunity to learn about sustainability initiatives in the region, network with local municipalities and organizations, and learn about resources available to you and your community. Registration was capped at 45 participants.
Participants included community members as well as students, faculty, and staff from SU, Gettysburg College, and York College. Over the course of two days, our 26 participants met with 12 community partners from Chambersburg Borough, Green Yard Waste Recycling Center, IESI Blue Ridge Landfill Landfill Gas-to-Energy Facility, Wilson College Fulton Farm, Michaux State Forest, and Adams Electric. Participants reflected on sustainability issues at a celebratory dinner after the conference.
