Land trust wants to honor eco-minded township

Natural Lands Trust, the Chester County Association of Township Officials, and the Montgomery County Association of Township Officials (MCATO) put out the call for nominations for the Growing Greener Communities Award, which honors conservation-minded accomplishments by townships in Chester and Montgomery Counties.

The Natural Lands Trust Growing Greener Communities Award was developed in 2013 to recognize municipalities that have engaged in dynamic initiatives to save land, steward natural resources, and/or connect people to nature. The awards will be presented at the spring MCATO and CCATO conferences on February 27 and March 12, respectively.

Last year, East Bradford Township, Chester County, received the inaugural Growing Greener Communities Award in recognition of the municipality’s most recent conservation achievements, which include securing conservation easements on more than 80 acres of Township land, galvanizing a volunteer effort to plant 750 trees, and constructing more than two miles of trails.

This year, the Growing Greener Communities Award expands to Montgomery County. “We are pleased to partner with Natural Lands Trust on this award program, and hope that it serves to encourage and promote continued forward-thinking projects and planning within the County,” said Daniel Littley, president of MCATO.
