WASHINGTON–Deputy Secretary David J. Hayes will be in New York to conduct a listening session as part of the President’s America’s Great Outdoors Initiative. He will be joined by Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and EPA Regional 2 Administrator Judith Enck. The session will be an opportunity for New York residents to tell members of the Administration about their individual, local, and state level involvement.
Following the listening session, Deputy Secretary David J. Hayes will tour the Henry A. Wallace Visitor and Education Center in Hyde Park and hold a question - answer session related to America’s Great Outdoors.
The America’s Great Outdoors Initiative was established by President Obama in April at a White House Conference specifically to develop a conservation and recreation agenda worthy of the 21st century and to reconnect Americans with our great outdoors. To accomplish this goal, the Administration’s effort will be community driven.
