Coffee and Conservation with Jessica Helmbold
January 15 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm ESTFree
Join Amos Butler Audubon Society Education Chair and Indy Parks Naturalist, Jessica Helmbold, on a discovery of the history of coffee. As you gain a greater appreciation for one of your favorite beverages, you should also think about how our consumption of this magical brew effects the environment.
One of the biggest threats to the environment, and more specifically to rainforests, is the clearing of land for the production of staple crops like bananas, pineapples, and coffee! Coffee is unique in that it can grow in harmony with the rainforest. But only if you demand it! You can vote with your dollars to support rainforest conservation through the kind of coffee you buy.
Attendees will have an opportunity to sample different varieties of Rainforest Alliance/bird-friendly coffees (while supplies last).
Recommended for adults. FREE to attend, no advance registration needed.
COVID precautions: This is an inside presentation, with an outside portion. The doors will be propped open for better ventilation, and the group size may be limited. Masks are currently not required. Check back for updates.
