Bergen County Audubon – 12th Annual Harold Feinberg Conservation Award Nominations Are Now Being Accepted

One of the best things about leading Bergen Audubon as the president has been the opportunity to meet many devoted, hardworking people in many small communities around Bergen County that are committed to conservation and making the environment a better place for their neighbors and the wildlife around them. These unsung heroes 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 annual Bergen County Audubon / Harold Feinberg Conservation Award.

This award is named in honor of Harold Feinberg, a long time 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.
We are asking you to nominate a candidate that you think should be recognized with this award. Please nominate someone who you think has worked on behalf of the environment and the BCAS board will consider them for the Award.
(Current BCAS board members are not eligible).

Nominations must include:

  • Name and address or phone number of the individual.
  • Description of their accomplishment; why you think this individual(s) should receive this award (400 words or less).
  • Your name and address or phone number.

All nominations must be received no later than October 30, 2021. 

Submissions may be mailed to BCAS, PO Box 235, Paramus, NJ 07653, or emailed to Don Torino at greatauk4@gmail.com
