Former governor, senator receive highest Audubon honors

Audubon Connecticut has announced this year’s Environmental Leadership Honorees and it will be an event of major, bipartisan political figures that gets together April 30 in Greenwich. The list of honorees includes former New York Governor George Pataki, former U.S. Secretary of the Interior and former Colorado senator Kenneth Salazar and Cornell Lab of Ornithology Executive Director John Fitzpatrick. They will be honored at the April 30 Leadership Awards Dinner at Belle Haven Club in Greenwich, which is located at 100 Harbor Drive.

“Our 2014 honorees remind us of what has always been an American tradition—that the conservation and wise use of our natural resources is not bound to political party or ideology, but is the responsibility of all of us to strengthen and continue,” said Audubon Connecticut Board Chairman A. Martin Cannon.

Mr. Pataki, Mr. Salazar, and Mr. Fitzpatrick are being recognized for their contributions to furthering conservation in Connecticut and beyond.

“This event will bring together the tri-state’s most prominent philanthropic community to celebrate the achievements of these great conservationists and to raise funds for Audubon’s vital conservation programs in Connecticut,” Audubon Connecticut said in a press release.

Tickets are still available for the event, with prices ranging from $500 to $10,000. Tables are also available from $5,000 to $100,000.
