IGBA Hosts Speaker on Ecosystem of Land and Sea

The Island Green Building Association (IGBA) will have a public presentation on Wednesday, Feb. 9, at The Marketplace on St. John, 2nd floor. Refreshments will begin at 5 p.m. Dr. Barry Devine will talk from 5:30-6:30 p.m. on “From Peak to Reef: Connecting Our Environment, Development and Our Future”
Devine, resident scientist, is the author of "Island Peak to Coral Reef, The Plant and Marine Communities of the Virgin Islands," and he will give a presentation based on his popular book, which he uses to demonstrate the connectivity between land and sea—and why the way we build on land effects the future of all living things on St. John. Learn how everyone’s actions play a part in every ecosystem around us, and how sustainable building and living today can safeguard our island’s quality of life for tomorrow. Visitors, locals, home owners and home builders alike will see the island through new eyes after his presentation.
All are welcome to this free seminar. Call 227-1110 for more information.
