Marist School will be hosting the Green Schools Alliance conference for Atlanta-area students and educators April 13. The goal of the conference is to foster a sense of community among the different groups that promote sustainability in schools and provide hands-on, realistic ideas for students and teachers to use in their schools. The conference will feature a keynote address from Laura Turner Seydel, national environmental advocate and chairman of the Captain Planet Foundation, as well as breakout sessions from several Atlanta organizations and non-profits, including the Chattahoochee River Keepers and the National Wildlife Foundation. Breakout session topics include projects like starting pollinator gardens, organic gardens, and rooftop gardens.

The Green Schools Alliance conference is open to faculty and students from all schools. Registration is $15 and includes lunch. Checks should be made out to Marist School and mailed to the following address: Marist School, c/o Amelia Luke, 3790 Ashford Dunwoody Road, NE, Atlanta, GA, 30319.
