On February 7, 2015 the environmental community lost a dear friend and valiant warrior in Endangered Species Media Project founder and long time Executive Director Frank Salzhandler.
Frank devoted his entire life to the cause of nature-based education for adults and children, for environmental justice, and for the preservation of precious natural resources for all. He believed we were each essential for preserving natural resources and a healthy environment for future generations.
His fight will go on as his mission lives in the hearts and hands of those he brought together to work for common goals. If you wish to commemorate Frank’s life and work, in lieu of flowers donations may be made to ESMP which will be used for the defense fund for Buffalo Bayou as Frank would have wished. Donations to this 501(c) (3) nonprofit are tax deductible.
On Sunday, March 22, 2015 from 1:00PM until 5:00 PM his family, friends and colleagues will gather at the Houston Arboretum to remember Frank and share our memories in his honor. In keeping with the traditions of ESMP there will be multimedia presentations of Frank’s life and work.
You will hear the music of The Buffalo Bayou Suite premiered by the River Oaks Chamber Orchestra which was commissioned by ESMP.
