“Through their various efforts and contributions of time, energy and resources, the 2013 Environmental Awards recipients have made a lasting contribution to protecting and/or preserving the natural resources of our region.  We are all grateful to these individuals and organizations for helping to maintain the Perkiomen Creek Watershed as a wonderful place to live, work and play,” said Meadows.
