Our conversation today featured Justin Proctor and Mike Shotton, committee members representing ACES - Advisory Committee for Environmental Sustainability for the Town of Front Royal.
Mike gave a bit of history for the group and talked about their goals. Justin explained that small, individual changes can have a significant impact on our environment. The pair gave details about several upcoming events and projects. They will host a tree giveaway on Veterans Day (November 11, 2023) at the gazebo on Main Street in Front Royal from 10am -2pm. Justin also told us about their "Dark Skies" project and gave a few tips for downshielding your outdoor lighting while still maintaining the security it provides. We also discussed the possibility of a new trail coming to the area.
Mike encouraged listeners to attend one of their monthly meetings for more information and/or to get involved. The group meets on the second Tuesday of each month from 5:30pm - 7pm at Vibrissa on Main Street in Front Royal.
