Join us in Pittsburgh Oct. 26An Evening to Celebrate Larry J. Schweiger

NextEra Energy Resources Presents:
A PennFuture Event 
An Evening to Celebrate Larry J. Schweiger 

You are cordially invited by PennFuture’s Board of Directors, Leadership Council, Invitation Committee, and staff in celebrating the distinguished career of our retiring President Emeritus, Larry J. Schweiger. 
When: 5:30 - 9:00 p.m., Friday, October 26

Cost: $125 individual; $1,000 table of eight ($50 of each ticket is a tax-deductible contribution to PennFuture.) 

Kindly RSVP by Friday, October 19, 2018. 

Larry’s career has taken him far beyond his early days as a boy scout, when on the shores of Lake Erie he pledged himself to the environment. Today, he enjoys a national and international reputation as a climate leader, but it all began, and continues, in Pennsylvania. This is an opportunity to honor all he accomplished on behalf of the place he calls home. Please join us for this very special evening. 

As Larry is a highly regarded nature photographer and birder, what better place to celebrate his career than surrounded by more than 500 birds from around the world in a beautiful space dedicated to saving birds and protecting habitats? The National Aviary’s spectacular walk-through exhibits of free-flying birds, including their new Tropical Rainforest, will be open to all guests throughout the evening. 

In addition to previously serving as PennFuture’s President & CEO, Larry also previously served as President and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation for a decade, and worked for 14 years as the federation’s senior vice president of conservation programs and in other capacities. In addition, he served as past President and CEO of the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy for more than 8 years, as founding chairman of the National Institute for Conservation Leadership, as the first vice president at the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, and as Executive Secretary of a bipartisan environmental committee of the Pennsylvania General Assembly.
