Under the Big Sky Greening Conference - June 11, 12, 13, 2003  

Conference organizers invite you to attend this this unique conference June 11 - 13, 2003 at Huntley Lodge Convention Center in beautiful Big Sky, Montana.

For many years, EPAC and Headwaters have been involved in helping to "green" Yellowstone National Park and the surrounding region -- EPAC by working to have ethanol and biodiesel included in Park fueling stations, and Headwaters by assisting with recycling and composting. This conference will highlight those achievements and focus on new and existing partnerships among communities, state and federal agencies and private industry. Conference tracks dealing with sustainable energy, conservation, environmental stewardship, and expansion of renewable fuels will be offered.

The conference is expected to draw attendees from the Rocky Mountain Region and surrounding states. Those in attendance will have a chance to learn from a variety of technical sessions covering a wide range of recycling, composting and bio-fuels topics.
