Audubon Connecticut
Honors Dan W. Lufkin
With The Connecticut Environment Leadership Awards


Tom Brokaw presented Dan W. Lufkin with the Connecticut Environmental Leadership Award at Audubon Connecticut’s Dancing with Nature Fall Dinner Dance at the Belle Haven Club in Greenwich, CT. The gala evening raised over $750,000 for the Long Island Sound policy, conservation and education programs of the National Audubon Society work through Audubon Connecticut and its Audubon Greenwich Center. This is the most raised in a single night for any one Audubon program in Connecticut.

This is only the second time that this Environmental Leadership award has been presented. Dan Lufin is renown for his business prowess from Chairman of Donaldson, Lufin, & Jenrette to co-founder of Questor Partners Fund 1 & 11. Dan’s record led the Wall Street Journal to list him among the most significant “100 Men in the World: People Who Influenced Our Daily Business”. His true passion is for the environment. In 1970 he was a member of the organizing group of the first Earth Day. For more than forty years Dan has been deeply involved in the protection and restoration of Connecticut’s first Commissioner of the Department of Environmental Protection. Under his watch, Connecticut was one of the first states in the nation to establish inland wetland regulations and the first to create a private enterprise, Resource Recovery Authority. Dan gave a gift of $100,000 towards the campaign to restore the Sound.

The evening’s Master of Ceremonies was Audubon CT State Board Chair, Holt Thrasher, who said, “By definition, Conservation is “Humanity caring about the Future.” Gina McCarthy, cur rent DEP Commissioner spoke on the legacy Lufkin and his team has provided the state.

Tom Brokaw made the Award presentation. “Even Washington is beginning to get the message that you can’t conduct business on a dead planet,” said the former NBC anchor and author. And then, “You all know why we are here. Dan Lufkin has always been a great citizen, we need to enlist more like him.”

Audubon Connecticut is the state office of the National Audubon Society. Its mission is to further the protection of birds, other wildlife and their habitats through science, education, advocacy, for the benefit of humanity and the earth’s biological diversity. Audubon Connecticut envisions a state with a rich and diverse natural heritage, where there is ample habitat for birds and other wildlife. Where a majority of its people appreciate and participate in their natural environment, and whose children are educated and motivated to become the conservation leaders of tomorrow.
