The Keewaydin Foundation is very proud to congratulate our own Tim Tadlock and KEEC, which recently received a Vermont Governor’s Award for Environmental Excellence. Vermont Agency of Natural Resources Secretary Deb Markowitz presented awards to 23 Vermont organizations and individuals at the State House in Montpelier on June 30th. Honorees were recognized for their efforts to conserve and protect natural resources, prevent pollution, and promote environmental sustainability. These prestigious awards honor individuals groups, and businesses that best exemplify the spirit of volunteerism and community service in Vermont.
KEEC’s award was given under the category of Environmental Excellence in Education & Outreach – recognizing organizations and projects that inform and educate others about environmentally responsible practices or that empower citizens to enhance the quality of the environment for local, regional or global communities. During the ceremony, it was duly noted that KEEC has served as the longstanding model (since 1973) of residential outdoor educational program for elementary and middle school students.
Congratulations Tim and KEEC!
