Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy Seeks Award Nominations

Ensuring that community efforts to protect and improve the local environment are publicly acknowledged, The Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy is looking for a few good people, projects and organizations to recognize with an Environmental Award.

Nominations are due August 15.

“Through commitments of time, energy and resources, individuals and organizations in the community have made a positive environmental impact at the local level.  It's important that the Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy acknowledge these efforts, so we're asking for your help. 

By nominating someone, a project or an organization, you'll let us know about work that has made a significant contribution to improving the Perkiomen Creek Watershed or protecting local water supplies," said Board member Garrett Burch.

To be eligible for the Award, nominees or nominated projects must be located within the 362 square-mile Perkiomen Watershed, comprised of all or part of 57 municipalities within Montgomery, Bucks, Berks and Lehigh Counties. 

Awards will be given in several categories:  Municipal, Land Use, Kids Making a Difference, Advocate of the Watershed, Corporate, Teaching Excellence and Friend of the Watershed. 

The awards are presented at the Annual Awards Banquet to be held in late October. All nominations will be judged by site visits or interviews performed by the Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy Events Committee.  Anyone may make a nomination and all entries are encouraged.
