Environmental Events Calendar - Feb. 15, 2011

February 15, 2011
NYU-Center for Global Affairs
Woolworth Building
15 Barclay Street (Enter on Barclay Street)
Manhattan
Moderator: Steve Godeke, Principal, Godeke Consulting. Panelists: Judith Kende, Director NY Region, Low Income Investment Fund, James Patchett, Goldman Sachs, Penny Fujiko Willgerodt, Executive Director, The Prospect Hill Foundation.
Panel Description: Sustainability and environmentalism have often been portrayed as benefiting affluent sectors of society while not addressing the real unmet needs of low-income communities. Compared to other challenges such as poverty, health and crime, creating sustainable communities has not been a high priority in our cities. On this panel, we will seek to move beyond this false trade-off to discuss how sustainability is being integrated into the fields of community development and environmental justice. Examples include the creation of affordable and supportive green housing, healthy foods funds for people living in food deserts, and green job training in low-income neighborhoods. Participants will include community development practitioners as well as philanthropic, private and public investors who are supporting initiatives which improve both standards of living and environmental quality.
About SPN: The Sustainability Practice Network (SPN) is a New-York-based forum for professionals working with corporate responsibility and sustainability issues to build community based on learning, discussion, information and idea exchange. There are over one thousand members on our list-serve, representing practitioners from industry, academia, government and NGO's.

When Dinosaurs Roamed the Pines
7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Pinelands Preservation Alliance's Bishop Farmstead

Meet author Dr. William B. Gallagher, who will present a program about dinosaurs in the Pine Barrens. Dr. Gallagher When Dinos Roamed NJwill also be available from 6:15pm to discuss and sign copies of his book When Dinosaurs Roamed New Jersey, which will be for sale to attendees.  About the Book: Did you know that Benjamin Franklin examined the first dinosaur bone in America from Woodbury, Gloucester County, in 1787--decades before the word dinosaur was even coined? Or that when the first reasonably complete dinosaur skeleton in the world was unearthed in Haddonfield, Camden County, in 1858, it was a major scientific breakthrough which forced paleontologists to completely revise their picture of dinosaur anatomy? Few people know that New Jersey is the nursery of American vertebrate paleontology! From tracking dinosaur footprints across the Newark basin, to digging for the last dinosaurs in the greensands of South Jersey, to finding a mushroom in ancient amber in East Brunswick, this book is the ideal introduction to the Garden State's fossils and prehistory.The event is FREE, but registration is required.  To register, contact Tom at (609) 859-8860 x14 or tomdunn@pinelandsalliance.org
