Last Tuesday, May 31st, the Environmental League of Massachusetts (ELM) hosted their 20th annual Earth Night.

The environmental community of Greater Boston united at the Boston College Club for a night of music, merriment and ways to make a difference for the Massachusetts environment. Pretty cool to be up on the 33rd floor looking out across the geomorphology of the Boston Harbor, Charles River and Mystic River watersheds. 

Grey Lee, the Executive Director of USGBC MA, made an appearance at the event and connected with this outstanding community of environmental advocates.

Congratulations to the Green Star recipients, Representative Steve Kulik, Brad Jones, Katy Eiseman with the Massachusetts PipeLine Awareness Network, and Aggregate Industries for their work to protect the Commonwealth's Environment.

A special thank you to Senator Edward J. Markey for inspiring us with his words and his dedication to our cause.

In the words of ELM President George Bachrach, “Determination to get something done has an edge to it, and that's what ELM is about.”

Grey Lee was caught in a picture with Austin Blackmon, Chief of Energy, Environment and Open Space for the City of Boston, and Senator Markey. We were joking around about doing hard work vs. hardly working (some parts of the government are hardly working)…Grey says, “if I were taking a selfie we would all have been looking in the right spot!”
