The Environmental Event of the Year
We hope you’ll join us for our annual celebration of environmental leaders in Maryland on Thursday, October 5 at The Colwell Center at the Institute of Marine and Environmental Technology (IMET) in Baltimore. Doors open at 5:00 pm with the program beginning promptly at 5:30pm.
Bonus! Cocktail reception extended until 8:30 – more time to mix and mingle!
We will honor Marylanders who have demonstrated vision, leadership, and courage in protecting clean water, healthy air, and resilient communities and celebrate with small-plate fare and a signature cocktail at the environmental event in Maryland. It will be (another) night to remember. We can’t wait to see you!
