Discussion: Steve Bain will speak about practicing natural resources law in Kazakhstan and working as an environmental management consultant in the Czech Republic, covering the practical application of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and issues that lawyers dealing with foreigners should know about.

Join us for the 8th annual Tree Planting!
Hosted by The Justice Center of the El Paso County Bar Association and CUSP, the event will be held on May 2nd, and service an area off of Rampart Range Road, above Cascade and Woodland Park.
This outgrowth of an original tree planting project out of Manitou Springs has been ongoing since 1982 and credits 12,000+ seedlings in the area to the hard work of volunteers.
Come get your hands dirty (in a non-metaphorical way) alongside colleagues and other community volunteers. Tree planting to be followed by a barbecue lunch, provided by pitmasters Jack & Doris Donley and Judge Prince.
To register, please visit www.justicecentercos.org/tree-planting
The seeds needed for this project are often quite pricey, and we rely on grants and generous donations every year to fund this project. If you would like to make a donation towards this year's event, please visit www.justicecentercos.org/donate
