EcoBenefete - Honoring Lt. Gov. Pierre Howard

  • Mason Fine Art 415 Plasters Ave NE Atlanta, GA 30324 (map)

The Georgia Conservancy's annual gala, ecoBenefete, celebrates and honors an individual or institution that has left a profound and lasting impact on the conservation and protection of Georgia's natural resources.

This year, the Georgia Conservancy's Board of Trustees will honor Lieutenant Governor Pierre Howard as Georgia's Distinguished Conservationist for his decades of advancing conservation in Georgia through dedicated service in the public, private and non-profit sectors.

Distinctly Georgian, Pierre Howard has dedicated his life to the protection of Georgia’s natural resources through his decades of personal and professional pursuits, and his accomplishments have both directly and indirectly advanced conservation in this state. An advocate, a hunter, a fisherman and a birder with a strong love of the natural world in Georgia, Pierre Howard embodies the true conservationist. And as any Georgian should, he has spent ample time exploring the woods, swamps, mountains and beaches that make our state one of enviable beauty.

“Pierre Howard’s commitment to our state’s natural resources cannot be overstated,” says Georgia Conservancy President Robert Ramsay. “Georgia is truly a better place today because of Pierre’s vision, dedication and leadership. The Georgia Conservancy, an organization so touched by Pierre’s conservationist spirit, is incredibly honored to celebrate him as Georgia's Distinguished Conservationist.”

ecoBenefete will feature signature cocktails from American Spirit Whiskey, a silent auction, a live auction, and a locally-sourced dinner from Affairs to Remember Caterers
