April is the month we set aside to celebrate, protect, and ameliorate our natural environment through events like Reforest the Bluegrass and Earth Day. It’s also a time to focus one of Rotary’s seven causes, Protecting the Environment. In that context we’re pleased to have as our speaker this week Amy Sohner, Executive Director of Bluegrass Greensource, a nonprofit environmental education organization serving central Kentucky. Amy has been with the organization since its inception and became director in 2006. She has a background in environmental education and a degree in natural resource conservation and management from the University of Kentucky
Amy is a certified environmental educator, a graduate of the Leadership Lexington Program, a board member of both Bluegrass Tomorrow and Keep Lexington Beautiful, and the chair of both Women Leading Kentucky and the Lexington Stormwater Stakeholder Advisory Committee. Her hobbies used to include camping, hiking, making stained glass, and viewing the Kentucky River palisades from her deck, but now she says you will usually find her running after her two daughters, Audrey and Eleanor.
Bluegrass Greensource works to empower the citizens of central Kentucky to create a sustainable environment by encouraging small steps that can make a big impact toward a greener future for our communities. Since 2001, the organization has provided outreach to schools, community groups, businesses, local governments, and citizens throughout the region.
