Author argues common ground on environment
Fred Rich has been active for decades in the land trust movement, including with the Hudson Highlands Land Trust, to preserve green spaces. He’s also had experience with urban farming, creating a garden with fruit trees and vegetables on the patio of his Manhattan apartment building.
At Boscobel in Garrison on Friday, Sept. 23, Rich will discuss his new book, Getting to Green, Saving Nature: A Bipartisan Solution, in which he outlines the history of conservative and progressive relationships with the environment and an approach to bridge the gap between the parties. The event takes place in the grand entry hall of the mansion at 6:30 p.m. and is followed by a reception in the carriage house. Tickets are $20 for non-members and free for members. See boscobel.org for more information.
