Botanist extraordinaire Edith Wallace, a friend of the Celery Farm, was part of Conserve Wildlife Foundation's 10th annual Women in Wildlife Awards last week. (Edith is second from left.)
MacKenzie Hall, one of this year's winners (third from right), has done a lot of work on bats and American Kestrels for the state. (She helped me get a bat-sonar monitoring for the Fell House four years ago or so. The sonar confirmed we had a few Big Brown Bats.)
Former Governor Christie Whitman is in the middle.
Congrats, MacKenzie and all the recipients of this nifty award. Some mighty impressive conservationists have won it over the years.
The video below also includes past winners Bald Eagle expert Kathy Clark, Barbara Brummer and Amy Greene of the Nature Conservancy, and many other names you might recognize.
