Celebrating the Long Island birthplace of the Environmental Defense Fund
Join us as we acknowledge the significant contributions made by the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) since its birth on Long Island 50 years ago. Senior counsel James T.B. Tripp and chief scientist Dr. Steven Hamburg will discuss the historic events that led to EDF's founding on Long Island half a century ago, the global scope of EDF's work today, and the prospects for environmental protection with the new President and Congress.
Other speakers will include two of the original founders, Art Cooley and Charles Wunster, who will address guests through videos. Public officials New York State Lt. Governor Katherine Hohluk, New York State Senator Carl Marcellino, Suffolk County Legislator Dr. William Spencer, Huntington Councilwoman Susan Berland and others will also attend. There will be a reception and networking session after the presentations.
Seating is limited. Tickets are $30 for adults and $25 for seniors.

The Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) is a leading international nonprofit organization that creates transformational solutions to the most serious environmental problems.
