What a wonderful gathering we had for the 43rd Annual Environmentalist of the Year awards event, hosted by ECOS. Many of us were even more grateful than usual to take the time to celebrate our region’s recent environmental successes and the environmentalists who spearheaded them. In addition to honoring and hearing from our outstanding environmentalists of the year this year, we enjoyed an address from Mayor-Elect Darryl Steinberg, live music from Midtown Jazz, wine from Moniz Family Wines and healthy eats from Whole Foods. Thank you to all who supported and/or attended the Environmentalist of the Year awards this year, with special thanks to our many generous sponsors, such as Andy Sawyer and Carol Bingham, Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District (SMAQMD), and Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD), and more.
