WHAT: Talk by EPA’s Regional Administrator Judith Enck titled “Environmental Protection: Accomplishments and Future Challenges.”
WHERE: Cook Campus Center, 59 Biel Road, New Brunswick, NJ 08901.
WHEN: 2 p.m., Tues., Jan. 29, 2013.
WHO: Judith Enck, Regional Administrator of Region 2 of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA).
BACKGROUND: The visit to the Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Sciences by the Regional Administrator is in conjunction with the USEPA’s “Documerica” photo exhibit currently on display at Rutgers’ Cook Campus Center until Feb. 5. The exhibit is a showcase of photographs depicting environmental conditions of the past and present from the region and across the nation. From its development in 1971, “Documerica” has been the United States' first serious pictorial examination of the environment.
Forty years later the project was rediscovered with the help of the National Archives. “State of the Environment” was launched on Earth Day 2011 as an opportunity for the public to participate and engage in a modern revitalization of “Documerica.” There are more than 1,900 new images that have been submitted to USEPA through Flickr.
