Save The Bay seeking award nominations

Save The Bay is now accepting nominations for its annual Environmental Achievement Award and the Alison J. Walsh Award for Outstanding Environmental Advocacy.

The Environmental Achievement Award is presented to an individual or organization that has demonstrated outstanding leadership to the protection of Narragansett Bay and its watershed. The Walsh award is given to a bay steward who has displayed a commitment through advocacy and action. The Walsh winner receives a $1,000 cash prize.

Jamestown resident Michael Brown, a longtime conservation commission who spearheaded the Earth Day cleanup, was posthumously given the achievement award in 2016. Nominations can be made by calling Maureen Fogarty at 272-3540. The deadline is April 7.
