Seneca Park Zoo Society seeks to recognize innovators and leaders committed to a greener tomorrow at its Environmental Innovation Awards and Symposium on Oct. 25 at the Joseph A. Floreano Rochester Riverside Convention Center.
A symposium led by green design expert Bill Browning, founding partner at Terrapin Bright Green, will follow the breakfast awards ceremony.
“The Rochester and Finger Lakes region is coming alive with innovators creating solutions to environmental issues facing our region,” said Pamela Reed Sanchez, president and CEO of Seneca Park Zoo Society. “The time is now for the community to recognize this innovation, and to accelerate conversations about future opportunities and solutions.”
Award nominations are accepted through Sept. 10 for five categories: youth, individual, civic and nonprofit, small business and large business. Visit senecaparkzoo.org/innovation for information and nomination forms.
Browning’s symposium focuses on “Innovation Inspired by Nature.” His career highlights include the greening of the White House, National Aquarium, Disney Hong Kong and the Sydney 2000 Olympic Village.
