Carbon-Lite Travel to MtnClim 2006

CIRMOUNT supports mitigating greenhouse gas emissions resulting from travel to professional meetings through purchase of equivalent green power Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs). At MtnClim 2006, we will display an educational poster and accept donations toward a group REC that we will purchase after the meeting. In subsequent years, we will consider adding a small surcharge to the registration fee to cover this offset.

Carbon-Offsetting Update: As part of CIRMOUNT's priority to encourage carbon-reduction and offsetting in our work and travel, we collected $168 in donations from MtnClim participants and purchased MtnClim group Renewable Energy Credits (green tags) from the Bonneville Environmental Foundation:

A PDF of the information poster, Going Carbon-Lite, that was presented at MTNCLIM2006 is available from the list of talks and posters; the handout is available for download here.

Transportation

The Lodge is a 2-hour drive from the Portland International Airport, and accessible by state highway. Rental cars are available at the airport, and several shuttles and Greyhound Bus connect the airport, Portland, and Timberline Lodge.

Shuttle arrangements can be made by calling Luxury Accomodations (503)668-7433 or Sea to Summit (503)286-9333.
