North Carolina Botanical Garden's Education Center, Chapel Hill (Old Mason Farm Rd.)

This event is not sponsored by the Sierra Club. The following paragraph was adapted from a portion of a press release by the Orange County Environment and Resource Conservation Department.

Keynote speaker Dr. Larry Band will discuss storm water sustainability in Orange County watersheds. Dr. Band is the Director of the UNC Institute for the Environment and a Voit Gilmore Distinguished Professor in the Geography Department. There will also be a panel of experts who will discuss issues pertaining to the quality and quantity of water resources in the county followed by questions from the audience. Following the summit there will be an optional tour of the Botanical Garden’s brand new Education Center. This will be the first public event held at the Center, which was built using a variety of “green building” technologies intended to achieve LEED-Platinum certification.

For 37 years, the Rogers Road community in Chapel Hill has been at the center of a public  debate about the impact of the Orange County Landfill, which borders the neighborhood.

An exhibit opening June 12 at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will tell a deeper story, uncovering more than two centuries of the community’s history.
