On Oct. 17, Great Rivers Environmental Law Center hosted its Lewis C. Green Environmental Service Awards Celebration at the World’s Fair Pavilion in Forest Park. This year, Great Rivers’ board of directors selected two awardees: retiring attorney Henry Robertson, who serves as director of Great Rivers’ Climate and Energy Program, and the late Wayne Goode, formerly both a state representative and senator.
“We are dedicated to protecting Missouri’s air, water, open spaces and climate in a state where this can be a challenge,” Robertson says. Additional details on the award recipients can be found here.
The event featured cocktails, dinner and a program highlighting the work done by the nonprofit organization. Great Rivers’ website calls its law center “Missouri’s first and only public interest law firm focused on the environment and public health.” Event proceeds and donations help the firm provide free services “to protect the places and people that need us most.”
