IndyStar The Scrub

From IndyStar

Join the conversation with IndyStar reporters Sarah Bowman and London Gibson as we get the scrub on all things environmental in Indianapolis and across the state.
 
We ask questions and write stories about the things that impact the natural world and Hoosier health. While we’re keeping an eye on energy and electricity, learning more about our wildlife, and bringing you tips and tricks to be more efficient and sustainable, we’ll use this space to answer questions and have open dialogues about the challenges facing our state and our planet.
Enjoy, engage and here’s to the environment!

You may have seen our post on The Scrub Facebook page where we have a form asking for questions that folks may have. Our plan is that we are going to take these questions – whether a science-geared question or one that is more procedural or a “how to” – and answer them in a very straightforward way. Almost similar to an “Ask us” column, we are calling it Scrub Hub.

We officially launched our Scrub Hub initiative this morning! We have two stories out: one introducing The Scrub Hub and how it works, and the other being the look at Mayor Hogsett’s environmental and sustainability record.

Books Booze & Brains

From Indiana Humanities

At long last, three of our favorite things—books, booze and science—are coming together in a new monthly book club for the scientifically curious! This new group will meet monthly at Upland Brewing FSQ in Indianapolis to talk about recent popular science books. A local scientist whose research relates to the book topic will join us to share insights and help guide the conversation.
