Highlands Coalition Director invites you to breakfast with EELC on April 19th

I’d love to share with you some good food, good talk, and good work by our friends at the Eastern Environmental Law Center at my home in mid-April.   I’ll be cooking eggs collected from our own chickens (you can visit them and guess who laid your breakfast egg!) and enjoying the early spring flowers, first thing Wednesday morning April 19th at 8 am, and I hope you can join us.  For the non-egg eaters, I will have other delicious options and good, strong coffee available (tea too, if you insist!)

The Highlands lie in the counties of Bergen, Hunterdon, Morris, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex, and Warren and include more than 88 New Jersey towns. The New Jersey Highlands are part of the Appalachian range which runs from Maine to Georgia. Photo courtesy of EELC client, the Highlands Coalition.

If you don’t already know about New Jersey’s only non-profit environmental law center, I will be pleased to introduce you to the EELC, a partner of the New Jersey Highlands Coalition.  They have represented the New Jersey Highlands Coalition in cases to preserve our lovely region, and are currently helping us protect Rockaway Creek, the wild trout stream near Tewksbury (Hunterdon County), from significant sewage discharge that would come with a planned commercial development.  If you do know the EELC, please come and join us for good food and further conversation. If you don’t know EELC, this will be an eye-opener for you.

EELC’s Executive Director Aaron Kleinbaum and their Board Trustee Alexi Assmus would like to introduce you to some of their other work across the region, including environmental justice work in Newark, open space work throughout the state, and their work on clean energy and the proliferation of pipelines in New Jersey.   They look forward to a casual discussion about New Jersey’s environmental needs in a challenging political climate.
This is my idea of a fun way to start the day!  I so hope to see you for breakfast and an interesting discussion.  Please let us know if you can come.
