The CCEDC Environment and Energy Program is pleased to announce:
The Annual CAC and EMC Roundtable: Serving as Stewards of the Local Environment
Volunteer members of local municipal Conservation Advisory Commissions or Boards (CAC/CAB) and the Dutchess County Environmental Management Council
(EMC) play a critical role as stewards of the natural resources and environment in their communities. The Annual CAC and EMC Roundtable Forum is a great opportunity for CACs and the EMC to share information about recent successes and challenges, discuss common concerns, and prioritize goals for the coming year. The Roundtable also offers members of the public (including youth) to learn about local environmental issues that are critical in our community, and how to get involved in protecting the environment in their own backyard.
When: Wednesday, February 23, 2011, 7:00 — 9:00 pm
Location: The Farm & Home Center, 2715 Route 44, Millbrook, NY 12545

This year’s Roundtable Forum will include:
