Thanks to all our speakers and guests
for a successful event!
Tom Uncher accepted the award on behalf of Brookfield Renewable Energy Group.The New York League of Conservation Voters' 2012 Albany Eco-Breakfast was our best ever, attracting some of the state's most important environmental policy makers.
Held on March 1 at the Fort Orange Club, the Eco-Breakfast honored two organizations that are working to improve New York's environment. Brookfield Renewable Energy Group operates one of the largest renewable energy portfolios in the world, and designed the award-winning Falls View Park in Cohoes. Parks & Trails NY is the leading statewide advocate for parks and trails, and plays a key role in advocating for sound investments and stewardship of the state's natural resources.

Mark Grisanti, who represents the 60th District in Buffalo, and Assembly Member Bob Sweeney, of the 11th District on Long Island. Both are key voices for the environment in state government, since they lead the Environmental Conservation Committees in their respective houses of the state Legislature.
