Khris' Corner

Welcome to my corner. Better yet, welcome to Envi online, your place to read about our community and environment, connect to organizations through our links page, check out the events calendar and blog, or get some ideas for fun family activities. Of course, you can read the articles too. Not only will you find some of the best articles from our latest print issue on the website, but the pages are filled with web exclusives, not found in the print version, or anywhere else for that matter. Our website is filled with articles and information all about our communities and our environment.

And yes, there is plenty to know. For example, did you know that Syracuse was ranked by National Geographic's Green Guide as the 17th greenest city in the country? Rochester was 21st. Believe it or not, we've got a lot going on here and this website is your key to find out more. This issue we've got a story on Chaumont Barrens that will definitely make you want to visit, a discussion with a local economist about the Superfund money spent on Onondaga Lake, and a look into the revitalization of the small communities that dot the historic Erie Canal. We have unique articles on biodegradeable flatware, green weddings, and organic beer. We also have informative articles about how to cool your house, where to find organic bedding, and where to find the best berries. We've got updates on political activity as it pertains to our environment and region. Now that summer is in full swing, we've got a list of farmers' markets, festivals, and other events from around the region.
