Conference: Living in the Avon Hills, Jan. 24

December 17, 2008 at 9:35 am 2 comments

I just learned about an excellent, family oriented conference at St John’s University in Collegeville.  The conference is all about sense of place, taking care of the land, and being outside as a family.  With a baby due Jan. 20 I probably won’t make it, but I hope you can!


On Saturday, January 24, shake off the winter chill at the 2009 “Living in the Avon Hills” conference at Saint John’s University in Collegeville, Minn. Award-winning author, naturalist, and wildlife photographer, Stan Tekiela will give the keynote address. The rest of the day is filled with speakers on topics of natural history, land-use, the arts and more. Bring the kids for sessions designed for them. At $15/adult and $5/child, this is an event you won’t want to miss. Register now!

    I teach an environmental science class at St. John’s and wondered if it would be possible for my students to attend the conference – w/o lunch, at a reduced rate. I have them working on a semester long project on siting a housing development on land adjacent to the Avon Hills area and would like them to think about issues that are bing covered by the conference.

    Good question Michael. I suggest calling the SJU Arboretum staff, who are organizing the conference. Their number is 320-363-3163. Good luck!
