State Conference


September 20-21st, 2017 | Baton Rouge

Join us September 20-21st in Baton Rouge for our annual two-day conference that will spark ideas and conversations about how we can protect Louisiana and its beautiful communities for generations to come. You’ll learn how to develop a successful wildflower trail program, how to reduce — or even eliminate — waste in your home and workplace, how to effectively market to millennials, and discover new tools in recruiting and managing your volunteer base.

The Everyday Heroes Awards Banquet, a formal dinner held on the evening of the first day of the conference, is an opportunity to showcase exceptional individuals across the state that have been nominated by their peers for the good work they have been doing to promote environmental initiatives.
