History: (Paraphrased from Mary Rose Livingston's introduction to the Sixth Annual Forum). "In Academic 1989/90 MES Graduate Student Eli Sterling conceived the idea to take the work students were doing in the MES program, get it out of the classroom and into the community. The name Rachel Carson Environmental Forum was chosen because Rachel Carson was the best bridge between science and policy making - and a hero for our time"
