OCWC given Environmental Leadership Award

Last night, several OCWC members attended the Genesee River Watch ‘River Bash’. It was a lot of fun – there was good music, food, and information. We got to see many, many folks we have worked with.

It was an honor for the OCWC to be recognized by the GRW for our work, we were one of three recipients of the Elizabeth Thorndike Environmental Award.

“The Elizabeth Thorndike Leadership Award recognized individuals, organizations and projects that have made significant contributions to the Genesee River Watch mission to champion solutions that improve the water quality of the Genesee and initiatives that connect people to the River.”

Other recipients were the Seneca Park Zoo Society for their “One Cubic Foot” project & the Dueppengiesser Dariy Co. of Perry for their outstanding management practices and educational outreach.

OCWC’s recent Trees for Tribs projects along the lower Oatka were especially noted. It was a very nice event, and we highly recommend going next year!


It couldn’t have happened without Pete! Thanks for your hard work!
