Leopold Center 20th Anniversary Celebration Conference
Tuesday, July 10 - Wednesday, July 11, 2007
Leopold Center 20th Anniversary Celebration Event!
''Sustaining Agriculture, Sustaining Democracy''
Keynote by Mark Ritchie
Minnesota Secretary of State

Please join us in celebrating the first two decades of the Leopold Center and, more importantly, planning for the challenges in the next two decades.

The event will begin July 10 with a selection of five pre-conference tours. Keynote speaker, Mark Ritchie, will open the July 11 conference conversation, and discussions will continue throughout the day in more than 20 breakout sessions.

The conference will include a midday outdoor festival with demonstrations, interactive displays, and a locally sourced meal. You won't want to miss the many exhibits and research posters highlighting the work of Leopold Center partners and collaborators.

The Leopold Center is making every attempt to make this a "green" conference. As part of registration, attendees will receive a water bottle made from recycled plastic, eliminating the need for single-serve, bottled or canned beverages. China and metal utensils will be used whenever possible, and handouts and presentations will be available on a conference CD to minimize the use of paper..

To make grocery shopping and errands a little more green, attendees can purchase a reusable tote bag (also made from recycled materials), featuring the Leopold Center's 20th anniversary logo. Order tote bags on-line or purchase at the conference for just $10.

Bag is 17.5 x 16 x 5 inches, with zippered top enclosure and matching web handles. Made from 25 percent post-consumer recycled material.
