September 14, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm$10
Wednesday September 14th from 4PM to 7PM. Includes time to enjoy a glass of wine from the cash bar and explore Alnoba’s ground and art.
Working to protect our planet means stepping up to the big fights against overwhelming odds. At this special event, hear from two daring leaders who did just that—and won. They’ll share their stories of how Conservation Law Foundation helped to kill Exxon Mobil’s Everett oil tank farm and how the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests helped stop Eversource’s Northern Pass plan to run 192 miles of giant power lines through the heart of the Granite State. Learn valuable leadership lessons that you can apply to the battles you and your organization face, whether big or small.
