Birds+Brews Series: Sustainability and Craft Beer

Climate change is destroying our path to sustainability. Ours is a world of looming challenges and increasingly limited resources. Sustainable development offers the best chance to adjust our course.                                                                                                                             – United Nations Secretary Ban Ki-moon

Carolina Raptor Center's speaker series, “The Sustainability Salon,” is designed to engage the community by bringing local, regional and nationally-respected speakers to discuss topics relevant to protecting the environment and conserving its natural resources.

The “Sustainability Salon” will reach out beyond our campus in Latta Plantation Nature Preserve to bring environmental education engagement opportunities to the community. Charlotte has few regularly recurring speaker series that address the environment and wildlife conservation. Local and national speakers will provide remarks and engage in dialogue around environmental  with attendees and special community guests.
