Details of Event:
Please join us on Tuesday, June 19th at the beautiful UConn Avery Point campus for a panel discussion, tours and Innovation Connection networking event.

The panel topic will center on Long Island Sound, the vital estuary that lies between Connecticut’s southern shores and New York. The Sound is a recreational, tourist and economic resource generating an estimated $5 billion in annual revenue through power generation, recreation, commercial fishing and shipping. It’s also an important bellwether of the environmental health of our water resources. The Sound is home to 28 million residents living within 50 miles, 100 sewage-treatment plants lining its shores, roughly 120 species of fish and hundreds of bird species.

Everyone is invited!
