The Gala will be presided over by Newcomb Town Supervisor George Canon as Honorary Chair with Tim Barnett, First Executive Director of the Adirondack Nature Conservancy accepting the Frank M. Hutchins Environmental Leadership Award.
The Adirondack Nature Conservancy was chosen to be the recipient of the award this year based upon the dedication and work the organization put forth to establish a plan for the Hudson Headwaters and Essex Chain of Lakes. “By working cooperatively with state and local entities, the Conservancy secured a plan that will provide educational opportunities and public access to the land while preserving the economic and recreational needs of the residents of the Adirondack Park,” a statement issued to the press said.
The Gala begins at 5 pm with a cocktail hour and music by the Morehouse Family Band. Guests can also enjoy the art and photography exhibit in the Adirondack Interpretive Center’s new Northern Forest Room. Dinner and the awards ceremony begin at 6 pm.
Dinner is $50 per person, $250 to be listed on the Patron list. For more information or for reservations, contact Sue Goodspeed at [email protected]
