WYO’s “Sacred Ground” Brings Conservation to the Pulpit

August 25, 2008

Casper, WY – Church members are learning how to make "God's green earth" even greener, as Wyoming's second annual "On Sacred Ground" conference begins next week in Casper. The gathering brings together church leaders and conservationists to share ideas about caring for the earth.

Linda Robinson, with the Wyoming Conservation Voters Education Fund (WCVEF), says this year's event will focus on how to take action through land stewardship, consumer decisions and energy policy. That means everything from recycling printed church programs, to switching to compact fluorescent bulbs, to scrutinizing the Scriptures for 'green' guidance.

"In a church, we are all about stewardship and taking care of what we've been given, and of course, we've been given the planet."

WCVEF and the Wyoming Association of Churches co-sponsor the event, but it's expected to draw people from all over the country. Robinson feels that if conservation actions are to be made meaningful, they must take place on a personal level - in people's houses, as well as their houses of worship.

"It's about making good choices about purchasing things in the first place, and then, once you have things that need to be recycled, knowing how to recycle them, and where."

The conference is to take place September 4-7 at the Ramada Plaza Riverside, Casper. More information is available online, at
