Native American Film Series

It’s been posted all over campus and online but here’s another reminder. The first screening of the Native American Film Series is tonight.  Yes, that’s right.  TONIGHT. The 2014-15 season will focus on environmental issues and climate change from the perspective of various indigenous groups.
Tonight’s event will feature Listening for the Rain: Indigenous Perspectives on Climate Change.  A discussion will follow after the screening with the filmmakers, Jeff Palmer (Kiowa), Filoteo Gomez Martinez (Ayuuk) and sociologist, Sonia Davila-Poblete.  Wish you had a little more information?  Well, then read about the filmmakers and check out the trailer.

Bike Fix-It Station

See our feature in the Echo!  On September 9th we sponsored the annual Transportation Fair and revealed our brand new (and very high tech) bike fix-it station.  This is just one of the many great things we have planned this year.  Keep watching that Augsburg calendar and checking our blog for the latest environmental news and events on and around campus!
