Wildlands Conservancy is looking to recognize one of the Lehigh Valley’s pre-eminent businesses that accomplish its work in a environmentally sustainable manner with this year’s Ark Award.
The deadline for nominations is September 4.
The Ark Award derives its name from the watercraft – the ark – that first carried coal to market on the Lehigh River in 1820. Arks floated down the river on the surge of water created by an innovative “bear-trap” locking system that significantly contributed to the start of the Lehigh Valley’s own Industrial Revolution 190 years ago.
This accolade is sponsored by Air Products and will be awarded at the Environmental Innovation Conference on September 17.
Nominations may be submitted by providing one-page summary of the nominee’s accomplishments and justification for receiving the award. Contact information for the nominee and the group or individual making the nomination should be included.
Send the information to Ark Award Nomination Committee, c/o Wildlands Conservancy, 3701 Orchid Place, Emmaus, PA 18049 or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
