GREENBURGH, N.Y. – The Greenburgh Nature Center gives residents an in-depth look at the environmental future of Westchester County.
On Wednesday, October 12, six County Board legislators and three of their upcoming reelection opponents will convene in Greenburgh to discuss their past environmental achievements, and how they plan to improve Westchester's environment in the years to come.
"There are many different choices we can make that will improve the environment and improve our quality of life at the same time, said Courtney White, the executive director of the Greenburgh Nature Center. "It's not just about a cleaner environment, it's really about a smarter environment. It's about making different lifestyles choices to make it a better world for us."

Attending hopeful opposing candidates are Peter Michaelis (R – District 2), Michael Smith (R – District 3) and Iris Pagan (R – District 5).
"It's very important that we provide a community gathering place for people to talk about issues related to how we're connected to the natural environment," White said.
The program begins at 7:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served at 7 p.m. The Greenburgh Nature Center is located at 99 Dromore Road in south Greenburgh.
