DC Greenery

The DC Metro area may not be the first place you think of when you're looking to go green, but amid all the traffic and hot air there is plenty of greenery to be found. I will be bringing your attention to more eco-conscious events and news items to help you get your green on while you're fighting that beltway madness.

Wendy Reiger, an anchor from the NBC's channel four has been blogging for some in The Green Room. Her posts are thoughtful, genuine, and surprisingly candid (who knew she eats hamburgers to combat hangovers?)

Green Festival 2007 is coming to Washington, DC on October 7 & 8 and I couldn't be more excited! The program still looks to be under development and, is it me, or does the list of presenters seem a bit academic? I can't put my finger on what exactly who I'd like to hear from, but I get the feeling that much of these presentations will be way over my little dull-witted head.

I missed it. I missed The Green House at the National Building Museum. Luckily their companion website gives me a glimpse of the good stuff, but I'd love to hear from any of your local-yokels who actually, as my son says, got your fanny over there .

Ain't public libraries grand? Arlington County has, what we call in the librarian-trade, a pathfinder on all those wanna-greenie resources. These resources were evaluated by librarians, who are probably one of the most annoyingly thorough people on the face of the planet (I can say that - I am one). Have you ever tried to ditch a reference librarian? It's almost impossible. But I digress.

Oh, and I think I'll be taking Sprout and Pip to visit Fairfax County's green fire station. I'm assuming the trucks will still be red.

Cool. I will tag this for a future visit -- it was years ago.
