We first mentioned the Green Living Project team and founder Rob Holmes last fall as they were reporting back on their trip to eastern Africa. Well, tomorrow night (Weds, Feb 11), they will be bringing their green love to the REI in Huntington Beach at 7pm to talk about their recent trip to document sustainability projects throughout southern Africa. Highlights from the trip to include a multi-media presentation of "anti-poaching efforts in Zambia; traditional handicrafts in Mozambique; bicycle projects and cheetah conservation in Namibia; and elusive leopards and an amazing new hut-to-hut trail network in South Africa. Plus, there are cool doorprizes for all attendees from gear companies like National Geographic Adventure, Timberland, Gregory, Keen, Chaco, Lonely Planet and ExOfficio.
