Senator Bill Nelson To Be Recognized at Audubon Assembly

posted on October 5, 2011 in Assembly

We are excited to announce that Florida’s Senior US Senator Bill Nelson will be recognized at the Audubon Assembly with Audubon’s prestigious Theodore Roosevelt Award.

Roosevelt, the nation’s first conservation President, was a founding member of Florida Audubon Society and established the first National Wildlife Refuge at Pelican Island.

The very name Theodore Roosevelt stands for resilienceresolve and courage in the face of fire.

No public figure in Florida embodies those values like Senator Bill Nelson, who has fought to protect the nation’s coasts from oil drilling, to restore the Everglades and to keep our water clean. For three decades Bill Nelson has been the most reliable champion of Florida’s environment. Now, he is a leading voice for the RESTORE Act to allocate primarily to the environment the penalties from the BP Oil Spill.

For everything that Bill Nelson has done we say thank you. And for standing up to the bullies, we say Bully Bill!  

The Assembly registration package is only $120 per person if booked before October 8.

Early-bird tickets are going fast – ensure your place and register today!
