1) Hilltop Hanover Farm trip:
This Saturday, November 6th, ELS will be going to Hilltop Hanover Farm in Yorktown Heights, NY. During our trip to the farm we will have a tour and then work either gleaning vegetables for the food pantry or planting garlic, so dress accordingly. We can also take home some organic vegetables, and can go hiking in the 130 acres of woodlands adjacent to the farm. If you are interested in attending, please sign up on TWEN!
Hilltop Hanover Farm and Environmental Center is a working farm and environmental educational center located in Yorktown Heights, NY. Westchester County purchased the 180-acre former dairy farm in 2003. The farm is a regional education center that offers programs on healthy and sustainable food production. This involves researching and teaching skills for small-scale suburban and urban farming techniques, and illustrating sustainable living practices such as alternative energy sources for the residents of Westchester County. There is a farm-forest dynamic which is seen throughout the property by the 50 acres of farmland and the 130 acres of forest with public hiking trails, vernal pools, rocky outcrops, and wetlands. The farm associates are a group of non-profit and for-profit entities who utilize farm space for educational, agricultural and animal husbandry programs for the public.
2) Sustainable Development Law Lecture:
On Wednesday, November 10th, at 4:00 PM, Professor Nolon will be giving a lecture on Sustainable Development Law and will go into some detail about programs and initiatives here at Pace Law School that are defining and moving this new field of law forward. He has spent two years researching and writing a book on Climate Change and Sustainable Development Law and is revising his land use casebook to become Cases and Materials on Land Use and Sustainable Development Law. His lecture will draw from that work and the incredibly fast-paced development of this new field of study and practice. There will be a good number of Pace graduates in attendance who practice land use and environmental law in firms and for agencies and they will be delighted to talk with interested current students at the reception in the JI rotunda following the lecture.
If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to Brenda Thornton at (914) 422-4123 or email@example.com.
3) Bard Center for Environmental Policy open houses:
The Bard Center for Environmental Policy is hosting two open houses in November, one at Bard (11/6) and one in NYC (11/12). Bard CEP offers MS Degrees in Environmental Policy and, new this year, Climate Science & Policy, both of which can be earned as dual degrees with Pace Law School. More information can be found in the attached flyer.
4) ELS Sleepy Hollow Hike:
On Saturday, November 13, 2010, Professor Nicholas Robinson will be leading a “Cases and Places” hike in Sleepy Hollow. More information on this event can be found in the attached flyer, and a description of the hike can be found in the “Events and Announcements” section of the ELS TWEN site. Please sign up on TWEN if you are interested in attending.
5) Pace Energy and Climate Center Conference:
On Friday, November 19, 2010, the Pace Energy & Climate Center is hosting a conference on District Energy Systems and Microgrids at the Judicial Institute on the Pace Law School campus.
The conference will feature speakers from energy and engineering firms such as the Galvin Electricity Initiative, Pareto Energy, Viridity Energy, Nexterra, Burn & McDonnell, Gotham 360, and FVB Energy as well as attorneys who specialize in the legal aspects of district energy, including Robert Loughney of Couch White, Catherine Hill of Whiteman, Osterman & Hanna and William Pentland of the Pace Energy and Climate Center. Also included will be speakers from NGO’s and universities. It is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy through its Northeast Clean Energy Application Center, and sponsored by the International District Energy Association.
