Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy Seeks Award Nominations

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

Nominations are due July 31.

“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 Creek Watershed, comprised of all or part of 57 municipalities within Montgomery, Berks, Bucks and Lehigh Counties. 

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

The awards will be presented at the Conservancy’s Environmental Awards Banquet and 50th Anniversary Celebration to be held October 22. 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.
