About The Conference
The Legacy Environmental Partnership Conference has a tradition of bringing together a diverse group of Alabama citizens who are interested in our environment. Cutting edge themes and quality presentations that are Alabama specific spark educational and exciting discussions on the latest environmental issues. Attending the Conference provides you with the opportunity to learn about environmental initiatives happening around the state and to network with others who are also striving to protect the natural resources of our beautiful state.
