Countryside Conservancy will recognize the winner of its 2013 Stewardship Award at a ceremony April 3 at 7 p.m. in Evans Hall, Keystone College. This year’s ceremony will honor Barry Kaplan, co-owner of Everything Natural in Clarks Summit, for his lifelong dedication to living and promoting an environmentally sustainable lifestyle. The event is free and coffee and desserts will be offered. All are encouraged to attend and show their support.
“For more than 30 years, Barry has led the way with his socially and environmentally responsible approach to business and life,” said Countryside Conservancy Executive Director, Bill Kern. “Honoring him with this year’s Stewardship Award is our way of thanking Barry for his strong commitment to preserving and improving our local environment.”
The Stewardship Awards were instituted 17 years ago to express the Conservancy’s appreciation for the efforts of good stewards of the environment. Countryside Conservancy protects land and water in and near the Tunkhannock Creek watershed for the public benefit now, and for the future. Updates on the Conservancy’s recent efforts, including progress on the Trolley Trail project, will also be provided at the event.
