I’ll be the keynote speaker at a daylong gathering that Audubon Connecticut is holding on Saturday, April 2, in Greenwich to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Audubon Society. My topic will be “What is Long Island Sound For?” -- how we have used the Sound and its watershed in different ways over the centuries, how the Sound has been essential to the region’s growth and economic well-bring, and how that led to the ecological crisis the Sound is still experiencing. I also plan to talk about how Broadwater’s LNG terminal proposal fits in to the Sound’s history.
Part of the day’s program will also focus on Audubon Connecticut’s new Long Island Sound campaign.

(Speaking of Audubon and birds, as I'm writing this, two wild turkeys are peering in at me through the glass door of our office here at home. With their feathers puffed out, they look remarkably like those fold-out paper turkeys that are used for Thanksgiving decorations.)
