Shannon Browne, Director of Community Outreach (Friends of CSNM) is invited to attend Patagonia’s Tools for Grassroots Activists Conference in late September 2017 at the Stanford Sierra Camp near South Lake Tahoe, California. Only 85 participants from around the country are invited to attend this 5-day conference.
Since 1994, Patagonia began offering these gatherings bi-annually in order to expand its support of grassroots environmental groups beyond its grants program. The goal of a Tools Conference is to provide practical training in skills that will help invited participants become more effective in their grassroots environmental efforts. Patagonia’s Tools conference organizers believe in the importance of sharing ideas and best practices that really work. The value of attending the conference comes both from the workshops and speakers and from networking opportunities with a truly inspirational group of participants.
Congratulations to Shannon!
