A quick note about the upcoming Chico State Sustainability conference in Chico, California.  Although not specifically a community college focused conference it is one I highly recommend for a number of reasons.  First off the conference is put on by the students of Chico State and they do a really good job.  Second, there really is a split focus of the conference, academic and community, which is really nice, this brings a practical aspect to the conference that is really enjoyable.  Finally, Butte College is nearby and their campus is worth a look as Butte was one of the first grid positive campuses in America.  Here’s a link to the conference website http://www.csuchico.edu/sustainablefuture/conference/
