Meet This Evening, Party This Saturday!

Meet this Evening ...
Join us this evening at 5:30 p.m. at the ReStore, 815 Young St., for Generation Charleston's next general meeting.

Beth Wheatley and Dennis Strawn will be discussing "green living" and land conservation.

Wheatley is director of government relations for The Nature Conservancy in West Virginia. She works in partnership with public agencies, corporations, landowners and others to conserve West Virginia's outstanding forests and natural areas. Most recently, she worked with partner organizations to pass legislation to develop an Outdoor Heritage Conservation Fund to invest in the conservation of the state's most significant lands.

Strawn has been a programmer analyst and application developer for Mountain State Blue Cross Blue Shield for 18 years. He commutes by bike daily for work and errands. He serves on the boards for the Friends of the Kanawha Trestle Trail Organization, Charleston Land Trust, the West Side Neighborhood Association, the West Side Main Street Organization and the Regional Intergovernmental Council.

The event is free and open to the public. Food and refreshments will be available.
