Author & Environmental Activist Bill McKibben kicked-off our new environmental lecture series in honor of Westport scientists Caryl & Edna Haskins who donated their estate on Green Acre Lane to Aspetuck Land Trust. Two-hundred land trust members packed the historic Pequot Library to hear Bill McKibben talk about global climate change. Our members enjoyed some appetizers by Cris Negrin of In Good Taste Catering and wine and local Two Roads Beer from Mo's Wine & Spirits.
Bill McKibben encouraged members to do more as conserving land is not enough. To learn more about Bill McKibben and his organization 350.org, visit www.billmckibben.com. For more information about the Haskins and the beautiful preserve in Westport, click here.
