Witnessing Best Practices in Habitat and Energy: A Tour of Raleigh Faith Communities via Biodiesel Bus

April 25, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Greenway Transit

This tour will gather people of faith to witness best practices within faith communities in Raleigh, NC. We will travel on a biodiesel bus, with Greenway Transit, visiting four sites, and sharing lunch. This tour will be led by the Youth Faith Conservation Network (YFCN) to generate innovative and collaborative conservation projects within faith communities. This project is being organized in partnership by NC Interfaith Power and Light (NCIPL) and YFCN, an Audubon Toyota TogetherGreen Project.

Registration for the tour can be reserved here.

YFCN is also helping to raise funds for Community United Church of Christ in Raleigh to install a 10,000 kWh/year solar array on their roof.
