Annual Fall Retreat

2018 EGA Fall Retreat
September 30 - October 3, 2018
Grove Park Inn | Asheville. NC

Registration is now open! Click here (login required) to see this year's agenda and here to register for the event.

At this year's Fall Retreat, we will revel in rich and beautiful Asheville, NC, pulling the web of connections across the state and region, from mountains to sea, local to global. From the rise of solar power to pipeline resistance, industrial livestock impacts to coal mining transitions, transgender rights to the toppling of monuments, and the growing debate about the use of wood pellets from southern forests as a clean energy source, the South is at the intersection of environmental challenges, progressive activism and conservative traditions. The Fall Retreat will have special programming to address the imminent challenges to communities and the environment, including proactive strategies such as litigation and other efforts to defend clean water and clean air.

Book your lodging at the Grove Park Inn here (Click on the $259 in the blue box in the upper right hand corner). Please note rooms are sold out for the Saturday night, but there are a few left for Sunday, Monday and Tuesday nights. Make sure to mention 'EGA' when you book your rooms!
