NYC Audubon Lecture

The following is from the New York City Audubon's newsletter:

November Lecture: Creating a Greener NYC with Adrian Benepe

Wednesday, November 14th, 6pm

Adrian Benepe has worked for the last 28 years protecting and enhancing New York City's natural and historic beauty. Since his appointment as Commissioner of the Department of Parks & Recreation by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg on January 25, 2002, he has focused on improving park facilities and programs for children and developing new waterfront parks and greenways.

Commissioner Benepe will discuss New York City's current period of transformation and expansion of its parks. The Department of Parks and Recreation is managing the biggest capital investment in New York City’s parks since the 1930s. Thanks to Mayor Bloomberg's PlaNYC initiative, Parks is receiving an additional $1.2 billion to expand active recreation and for greening initiatives. Commissioner Benepe will explain these projects and discuss their role in creating a greener, more sustainable city.

The Lecture Series is made possible in part by the generous support of Dr. Claude Bloch.

Helen Mills Theater at 137-139 West 26th Street (6th & 7th Ave)

Directions: 1, N, R, W to 28th St.; F, V to 23rd St.

All lectures are free and open to the public. Please note changes in time and location for this year's series.
