Join Great Rivers as we celebrate Missouri’s environment and present the 2021 Lewis C. Green Environmental Service Award to two heroes who have made exceptional contributions to the protection of the local environment:
Wayne Goode, Late Great Rivers Board Member, Legislator and Environmental Pioneer
Wayne led the environmental movement in the Missouri Legislature from 1963 to 2005. Wayne followed his 42 years of public service with years of dedicated leadership in many environmental organizations, including serving on the Board of Great Rivers. He is also recognized as the father of the University of Missouri-St. Louis.
Henry Robertson, Director of Great Rivers Climate and Energy Program
Henry was an invaluable Great Rivers attorney, dedicated to the mission and strength of Great Rivers. He led Great Rivers’ Climate and Energy Program for more than 15 years, a tireless fighter who successfully pushed state and federal officials to follow required standards. Henry wrote much of Missouri’s renewable energy and energy efficiency laws.
The celebration will be held Sunday, October 17, 2021 from 5:00-7:00pm in the outdoor space of the World’s Fair Pavilion in Forest Park, St. Louis, MO.
The event will feature live music by the Gateway Guitar Quartet, a silent auction, cocktails, and hors d’oeuvres.
Proceeds of the event will support Great Rivers’ legal work to protect the environment and public health.
