An announcement in the La Crosse Tribune:

Coulee Partners for Sustainability will sponsor a Natural Step study circle from 4:30 to 6 p.m. on Mondays from Oct. 5 through Nov. 2 in the Community Room of People’s Food Co-op.

Participants will learn about the Natural Step framework and plans for its use in the city and county of La Crosse. Additional topics include an analysis of home electricity bills and how to use simple devices such as the “Kill-a-Watt” meter to track electricity consumption and reduce energy usage.

The five sessions are free and open to the public. Study materials will be provided. To sign up, e-mail Rob Tyser at by Oct. 2. For more information, go online to
