The REWG, which focuses on wildlife and ecological issues associated with the siting, construction, and operation of renewable energy generating facilities, will take a tour of Mims’ sustainable facility and conclude with a social and networking reception on-site.
For more than 50 years, Mims Distributing has maintained a commitment to develop partnerships with groups throughout the state dedicated to the conservation of natural habitats and reusable energy resources.

The conference is one of the largest gatherings of wildlife professionals and students in North America and will take place Saturday, Oct. 15 through Wednesday, Oct. 19 at the Raleigh Convention Center.
