Reconnect with old friends and make some new ones while enjoying drinks at 200Orchard! We are excited to be joined by special guest Nate Woiwode, Policy Advisor, who will give a short presentation on how Hurricane Sandy sparked a conversation how "natural infrastructure" like wetlands, dunes and forests can help protect us during disasters; how the Conservancy responded; and what we're doing now to promote natural infrastructure in NYC and around the region. We will also have time for questions and conversation with Nate afterwards. See you there!
