Message From the President 
Leo Earth Day 2010
ABM Industries
Spring is Here!
Spring has arrived in Madison! Since the ice has melted, we have had the privilege of watching the loons, coots, and mergansers arrive and depart from Lake Monona. With the renewal of
Spring, Leonardo Academy is exploring new avenues  in advancing sustainability.

On Earth Day, Leonardo Academy staff cleaned up the city park next to our offices.  It was a beautiful day, and we collected approximately 10 bags of rubbish, which was considerably less than the year before.
This spring, we also conducted a prescribed burning at the Valley Ridge Preserve in Richland Center, Wisconsin. We are gradually increasing the area that we burn each year to expand the preserve's restored savanna territory. In previous years the vegetation was very wet, which limited the effectiveness of the controlled burns. However, this year we experienced very dry conditions, so the burns were quite lively!

Leonardo Academy is also continuing to expand its sustainability training and is now providing training both in person and by webinar. We are offering a FREE webinar on June 17, at 2:00 PM Central Time, titled "123 LEED-NC: How to be a Hero and Deliver Great Post Occupancy Performance." Sign up HERE if you are interested in participating in this training course.
