Our next Wilton Go Green Green Speaker Series event with our partner Wilton Library Association is coming up on May 30th at 7pm.
Sarah Evans, PhD, MPH, will be speaking about potential health risks from exposure to indoor and outdoor air contaminants and what we can do to protect ourselves and advocate for effective public health policies. Patrice Gillespie, a founding member of Wilton Go Green, Wilton native, and long-time advocate for clean air and environmental sustainability, will tie the lessons from Dr. Evans’ talk to Wilton’s no-idling policies.

Sarah F. Evans, PhD, MPH, is Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Medicine and Public Health and a member of the Institute for Exposomic Research at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Exposomics is a field of science that examines how environmental chemicals interact with physical, biological, and social factors to determine health outcomes.
Dr. Evans’ research is focused on the impacts of early life environmental exposures on nervous system development and child behavior. She is a trusted voice on the health effects of toxic chemicals and what individuals can do to protect their own health as well as how to advocate for healthier policies in their local communities. She obtained her doctorate in neuroscience from Weill Cornell Medical College and her Master’s in Public Health from Mount Sinai, where she also completed a three-year fellowship in environmental pediatrics.

The Wilton Land Trust, Wilton Library, and Wilton Go Green have come together to offer a unique and immersive book-reading experience. Together, we've created an opportunity for families to venture outside, explore nature, listen to stories, and make an upcycled craft. As partners, we're elevating young minds within beautiful landscapes.
At the event:
Amy Lilien-Harper, from the Wilton Library, will read hand-curated books. Tammy Thornton, President of Wilton Go Green, will guide us through an upcycled craft. David McCarthy of Wilton Land Conservation Trust will lead a short but sweet guided walk.
Please remember to bring your blanket, snack, something to drink, and join us for some fresh air as we celebrate community, nature, and a good book.
