One of my great pleasures leading Bergen Audubon as your President has been the opportunity to meet so many devoted, hardworking and caring people in many communities that are committed to conservation and making the environment a better place, not only for the wildlife but also for their entire community.
Our Conservation Awards are for these heroes who have given of themselves with little recognition and often with personal sacrifice. So it is in their honor that we are proud to announce our winners of the 9th annual “Bergen County Audubon/Harold Feinberg Conservation Awards.”
Our Conservation award is named in honor of the late Harold Feinberg, BCAS Board member and field trip chairman for many years. Harold was a mentor, an enthusiastic supporter of our endeavors and always gave freely of his expertise with a combination of patience and knowledge that few possess.
This year we are very proud to have three well deserved award winners.
