Submitted by the Event Organizer
Join Judith Enck for a discussion on environmentalism in the region today and her work as an EPA Regional Administrator and as founder of Beyond Plastics, an organization that pairs the wisdom and experience of environmental policy experts with the energy and creativity of college students. Thomas Cole is considered an early American environmentalist, working before the term was even coined. In his art and writing, Cole advocated strongly for the preservation of the American landscape. In response, the Thomas Cole National Historic Site launched its “Greening Initiative” in 2015, which Judith describes as “a model for other historic sites around the state.”
