Former Coeymans resident Bernard Melewski joins us on Saturday, April 30, at 2 p.m. to talk about his book “Inside the Green Lobby.”
His book recounts the behind-the-scenes struggles of a veteran environmental lobbyist working to save New York’s six-million-acre Adirondack Park from the devastating damage from acid rain and the sudden breakup of massive private land holdings.
From strategy sessions to private meetings with legislators, governors, members of Congress and even the President of the United States, “Inside the Green Lobby” recounts, through engaging and entertaining stories, how environmental advocates successfully pursue legislative and policy change.
Copies of the book will be available for purchase and will be autographed by the author. Register today!
