  • PBS-thanks for reviewing Shannon, I’ll be finishing in flight,
  • please let me know if there are any other pressing issues
  • Liz (apologies for bolds just meant to draw attention) I'll be in New York as of monday, to help out with prep for the EPA workshops. I've been thinking we should really rock those workshops to prove the utility and promise of our approach--was thinking: 1) of some kind of large scale map of maps that could be displayed? Stew would you have a moment to help point out maps that could contribute to that--I'd like to develop a flow chart of sorts organized by use: oil spills, NDVI, agriculture, landfills/superfund sites, ecological sites, civic events, wetlands/coastline...categories to add... 2) a network diagram of our partnerships. Which reminds me a long outstanding project of mine has been an evaluation of our partnerships built this year--could everyone whose not had a chance to fill it out, please do that by monday? Liz and Mat (though Mat it looks like you made a start?) I just resent the form to you both.

-- Hey Sara, was this you jotting this in here? If you make these items, I will definitely print them! I’m not sure if we have wall space though.

  • Mat can work through his distributor for water-cured and fire-hardened bamboo, hand pick, and ship to NYC.
