Starting in February the Des Moines chapter of Green Iowa AmeriCorps is hosting a four-session Women in STEM book club at Smokey Row Coffee in Des Moines.

Green Iowa focuses on education and outreach to encourage conservation and sustainability. Green Iowa AmeriCorps began in 2009 serving Black Hawk and Linn counties with site offices in Cedar Falls and Cedar Rapids. They now have seven offices around Iowa.

The Des Moines office focuses on organizing education and outreach events in schools, community centers, and businesses within the city to educate citizens on environmental issues and living a sustainable lifestyle.
