EEC Updates - from July and for August!

Read up on the August meeting agenda and July post-meeting news and updates: coalition good news, a new composting project initiated, and more!

Hello EEC friends, community members, and environmental stewards! It's a full summer and we are enjoying everything our neighborhoods and environment offer to us. While we've been doing summer hours to enjoy the outdoors, we're basking in the ongoing work on EEC - being out caring for the community and land as well as talking to many of you wonderful volunteers! At our hybrid July meeting, we discussed a new Edgewater pact idea ad formation and shared a new resource sheet from Edgewater Library. We also shared updates from our meetings with the new 48th Ward office and our current shoreline project. Thank you to everyone who has filled out surveys at the lake and Monday Market on the shoreline! There will be more to come for that project. There was good news shared from the Save our Ash and Water for All coalitions. Review the meeting summary and highlights below to get more details! Our August monthly meeting is Thursday 8/10, hybrid again. In-person at 6018 N Kenmore and on Zoom. Check out the agenda to see all the topics to be covered, including our Shoreline work and several new exciting initiatives we are working on - from water to compost! We look forward to seeing you soon! Our monthly meetings take place at 6:30 PM every second Thursday of the month, and they are all posted on the Events webpage.
