The City of Albany and its Sustainability Committee are sponsoring the first annual Green Albany Day on Sunday, May 17, 2009 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Veterans’ Building in Memorial Park. Along with hands-on activities for children, 30 informational booths and six environmental workshops, the event will feature the unveiling of Albany’s draft Climate Action plan.
The Climate Action Plan will serve as a guide to reduce the City’s greenhouse gas emissions. It covers topics ranging from energy conservation to solid waste reduction and recycling to transportation efficiency. Community members will have an opportunity to provide feedback on the plan and learn more about promoting environmental sustainability in the City of Albany.
Other highlights of Sunday’s event will include valet bicycle parking by Albany Strollers & Rollers, food prepared by Albany’s MacGregor High School’s Culinary Program and live music from Albany High School Connect students.
