    About:

    We hear a lot of myths about LEED. Everything from cost to effectiveness and yet, it’s the most used green building rating system worldwide and LEED buildings are proven repeatedly to offer a greater return on investment, healthier, more productive occupants, and a greatly reduced impact on the environment. So why can it be so hard to broach that conversation with clients? Join us to discuss the business case for LEED. We’ll discuss the dollars and “sense,” return on investment, and ESG/CSR all while talking through ways to start that conversation with your clients and follow through on the results.

    Program Overview:

    Book: Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer


    As a botanist, Robin Wall Kimmerer has been trained to ask questions of nature with the tools of science. As a member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, she embraces the notion that plants and animals are our oldest teachers. In Braiding Sweetgrass, Kimmerer brings these two lenses of knowledge together to take us on “a journey that is every bit as mythic as it is scientific, as sacred as it is historical, as clever as it is wise” (Elizabeth Gilbert).

    Drawing on her life as an indigenous scientist, and as a woman, Kimmerer shows how other living beings―asters and goldenrod, strawberries and squash, salamanders, algae, and sweetgrass―offer us gifts and lessons, even if we’ve forgotten how to hear their voices. In reflections that range from the creation of Turtle Island to the forces that threaten its flourishing today, she circles toward a central argument: that the awakening of ecological consciousness requires the acknowledgment and celebration of our reciprocal relationship with the rest of the living world. For only when we can hear the languages of other beings will we be capable of understanding the generosity of the earth, and learn to give our own gifts in return.

    • Winton Centre auditorium 10245 Winton Road, Cincinnati 45231

    Organization: Audubon Society of Ohio

    About this event:

    A special event is planned to celebrate the Audubon Society’s 125th anniversary. The Cincinnati chapter of the National Audubon Society was founded in 1897, and as the only Audubon Society in the state at the time, took the name “The Audubon Society of Ohio” (ASO). We invite you to come out and celebrate the chapter’s anniversary on what will certainly be an entertaining and fun night.

    When: Thursday Evening, September 22, 2022.

    Where: The Great Parks of Hamilton County Winton Centre auditorium located in Winton Woods Park. The address is 10245 Winton Road, Cincinnati 45231. See directions below.

    Registration: Registration is required. There is a $10 registration fee per person. Attendance will be limited due to space restrictions, so register as soon as possible to insure a reservation for this special celebration.

    How to Register: Go to the following link, fill out the registration form, and click submit when you are finished. You will receive an email confirming your registration. The link is: https://cincinnatiaudubon.regfox.com/125th-anniversary

    Time: Social hour begins at 6:00 PM. Program begins at 7:00 PM. An array of delicious appetizers, hors d’oeuvre and refreshments will be served during the social hour beginning at 6:00 PM.

    Program Details: Our guest speaker will be Steve Maslowski, who will present his film honoring his father entitled “Wildlife Photographer: The Life of Karl Maslowski”. Steve is an outstanding speaker and in addition to showing his film, Steve will also share his memories of his father and share anecdotal stories of his life as a wildlife photographer.

    Karl Maslowski (1913 – 2006) was nationally recognized as a wildlife photographer, filmmaker, writer and conservationist. He also was active locally, serving for many years on the boards of ASO, the Cincinnati Museum of Natural History and the Cincinnati Nature Center.

    He was a pioneer in wildlife movie making. He shot some of the first color motion pictures of North American wildlife in the 1930’s. He went on to make scores of outdoor films, some for state conservation agencies, and some for lecturing for National Audubon, National Geographic, and others. In addition he wrote hundreds of magazine articles, and for 50 years authored a weekly nature column for the Cincinnati Enquirer. That column, “Naturalist Afield”, still holds the paper’s record for longevity of a column by a single author. His still photos of wildlife appeared worldwide. Karl was instrumental in the success of our Audubon chapter, and it is fitting, and we are honored, that we have Steve presenting the film on Karl at our special anniversary program.

    Steve, who also served on our chapter’s board, worked with his father for many years. But he says his father wore size 12 boots, and he 8 1/2. Still, Steve and his brother Dave did not fall many footsteps away from the tree. Their work has appeared in nearly all nature magazines, and in a number of PBS shows. Steve describes the film about his father as “…biographical. It looks at how circumstances and events in the heart of the 20th century affected one man, and how one man in turn affected the world”.

    Grand Prize Raffle: At the door each guest will receive a registration receipt that will be used as a ticket in the Grand Prize Raffle. The Grand Prize is a pair of compact Swarovski CL 8 x 25 binoculars valued at over $900. Additional $10 raffle tickets can be purchased at the door on the night of the event. You must be present to win.

    Door Prizes and Giveaways: There will be additional door prizes as well as giveaways. Everyone will go home with something.

    Organization: Ohio Environmental Council

    About this event:

    Everyone deserves an equitable energy system. They also deserve renewable energy. No one should fear losing their electricity, whether due to a disaster or because it costs too much.

    When we consider the scale of the climate crisis and the need for comprehensive solutions, we must always consider energy justice at the center of all efforts to decarbonize and democratize our electric grid.

    Thus, at the 2022 Ohio Public Interest Environmental Law Conference, we’re In Pursuit of Energy Justice for All. From federal to state to local policy, and executive decision-makers to community organizers, we’re including many different voices in the conversation. Join us on September 29, 2022 and lend your own voice to the discussion!

    Attending attorneys will receive CLE credit for the conference (up to 6 hours), pending Supreme Court approval.

    More information can be found here.

    Ohioans are witnessing volatile shifts in energy prices, from gasoline to electricity and beyond. Roadblocks created by lawmakers continue to obstruct access to renewable energy sources, whether on a home’s roof or for a community or utility-scale project. In the aftermath of bad legislation like House Bill 6, we must explore new visions for the Buckeye State’s renewable energy future. We must explore Energy Justice.

    We hope you will join us in this effort In Pursuit of Energy Justice for All at our 2022 Ohio Public Interest Environmental Law Conference on September 29, 2022.
