A group of committed environmentalists in Woodbury have established a new organization entitled the Greater Woodbury Environmental Forum. The Forum will be a venue for speakers and discussion panels focused on the challenges facing our environment. The group plans to invite prominent scientists and environmentalists to offer presentations and participate in moderated discussions with the audience. The aim of the series is to increase public awareness, stimulate debate and highlight emerging science and technology. They also want to ensure that these presentations focus on how the local populace, particularly our youth, can be part of the solution to the environmental challenges we face. The Forum was recently awarded a grant by Connecticut Community Foundation based in Waterbury.
