    As part of the Library's Earth Day @ 50 Celebration, Warwick residents JoAnn and Paul Dolan will outline the strategies and challenges involved in the successful campaign to save the 22,000-acre Sterling Forest from environmentally destructive development.  The Dolans worked with many others in Warwick, Tuxedo throughout New York and New Jersey to forge a diverse coalition and a team of environmental experts.  The presentation will include a "how to" component to help activists understand how to pursue successful preservation projects.  Mr. and Mrs. Dolan are donating copies of key documents and videos about the history of the project to the local history collection at the Library so that open access will be available to those studying the forest and this important successful preservation project.  Please register to reserve your seat.


    • JoAnn Dolan served as Executive Director of the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference, a member of the Board of Managers of the Appalachian Trail Conference and a member of the Board of the Palisades Interstate Park Conservancy.   She helped coordinate the Public-Private Partnership to Save Sterling Forest and was also involved in working with the various experts, lawyers and scientists whose testimony was crucial to the preservation campaign.
    • Paul Dolan is the former ABC News International Executive Director and worked at ABC for 35 years.  He was awarded the Conservation Champion prize by  ABC's parent company, the Walt Disney Company, in 2016 for work on preserving Sterling Forest.  He was also given the Patriot of the Year Award in 2016 by the Sons of the Revolution of New York for helping find funds to restore the famous historic Fraunces Tavern in New York City after Hurricane Sandy.
