Build a Greener Adirondacks Calendar

What Time?
*Registration required

Join us on Thursday, March 21st for The Wild Center’s 5th Build a Greener Adirondacks, a day-long conference and vendor exposition designed to educate local builders, contractors, architects, code officials and engineers about the latest in current green building practices and products.

In the past, BAGA has focused on the energy and cost savings of building green.  This year we will shift the conversation to the qualitative aspects of green building: health, wellness and comfort.  One of our breakout session will concentrate on teaching how to market and use social media to attract new customers to your business.

New this year, thanks to our partnership with U.S. Green Building Council Upstate, we plan to offer GBCI and AIA continuing education credits.

Featured speakers include Kevin Stack of Northeast Green Building Consulting who will talk about the unintended consequences of building green, and Mike Phinney of Phinney Design Group who will focus on the health and wellness benefits of green design. In addition, there will be extensive break-out sessions with powerful examples of local and regional success stories.

See the full agenda, registration information, bios on speakers, a list of vendors, and much more at www.wildcenterbaga.org.

Cost: $50 for individual*, $300 for vendors, $2,500 to sponsor.

The $50 registration includes lunch at The Wild Center and an end-of-the-day sampling of local brew from our sponsor, Raquette River Brewery.
