Green Tie 2013 – North

The Nevada Conservation League’s 2nd Annual
Northern Nevada Green Tie Event

Our northern Green Tie event for 2013 honored Joe Johnson. The memorable event was held at the historic Brewery Arts Center in the foothills of Carson City on April 25th.

Joe JohnsonA former State Assemblyman, and a lobbyist for the Sierra Club, Joe Johnson has been a great friend of the environmental community and an invaluable mentor to the Nevada Conservation League. Joe has worked closely with us for many years, as a partner during the Session, as an active member of our Conservation Scorecard Committee and as a participant in our Common Agenda process.

Joe was an early advocate for renewable energy. He has been a part of many groundbreaking environmental laws, including the state’s first renewable energy portfolio standard, and the Utility Environmental Protection Act. Known for being knowledgeable, thoughtful, and very effective, Joe has also been influential in creating important environmental protections for some of Nevada’s most treasured places, including Red Rock NCA and Lake Tahoe.
