Discover the Intricately Woven Stories of the Natural World with Save the Sound Expert Anthony Allen

In December, work began on the Pages Millpond fishway project in North Branford, designed to increase spawning habitat for alewife, blueback herring, American eel, and sea run brown trout. Come find out about this and how it connects with other exciting Save the Sound projects from Ecological Communications Specialist Anthony Allen. Allen, along with project manager Alex Krofta, will speak as part of the Branford Land Trust Winter Lecture Series on Thursday, February 27, 7:00 p.m., at the Willoughby Wallace Memorial Library in Stony Creek (146 Thimble Island Rd, Branford).

Anthony joined Save the Sound in May of 2019 as the Ecological Communications Specialist. In this role, he shares the intricately woven stories of the natural world and our efforts to help restore it. He is excited by the opportunity to tell these stories in new and compelling ways.

A self-proclaimed idealistic pragmatic optimist, Allen is also the founder and president of A Tipping Point, a New Haven-based non-profit working to build a thriving local economy in which no material or human potential is wasted. In his spare time, he can be found cycling, backpacking, reading, or exploring the food, drink and art scenes in New Haven. Anthony holds his MBA from Quinnipiac University, an Executive Certificate in Social Impact Strategy from the University of Pennsylvania, and is a graduate of both Democracy School and the Institute for Effective Governance.

The Winter Lectures Series is free and open to the public. Watch for details on the BLT Winter Lecture Series scheduled for Thursday, March 26 (James Prosek); Thursday, April 23; and our Annual Meeting on Tuesday, May 26 (Alan Poole, Revival of a Global Raptor the Osprey).
