At its 27th annual Members & Friends Celebration on September 30, Brodhead Watershed Association honored Craig Todd for for his exceptional commitment to maintaining a healthy environment for future generations.
The event, held at Northampton Community College’s Tannersville campus, included 200 BWA members and friends.
Todd has been manager of Monroe County Conservation District for more than 30 years, bringing together partners from around the county – and across the state – on projects and plans to protect water quality and quantity, maintain biological diversity, and educate children, adults and public policy makers on the importance of the natural environment.
“Craig has been a leading voice for the vital need for planning, whether it be erosion and sediment control plans for individual sites or planning for the future of Monroe County,” said Edie Stevens, founder and board member of BWA.
Along with the accolades, Craig Todd received an engraved river rock for his garden.
Todd joins the Issues Committee of BWA, a group that identifies and addresses environmental problems within the watershed.
Also honored were three staff members of Monroe County Planning Commission – Christine Meinhart-Fritz, director; Evan Makuvek, environmental planner; and George Basila, GIS analyst – as valuable partners in BWA’s Green Infrastructure Project, promoting use of nature-based solutions (such as rain gardens) to protect water quality.For information on programs, initiatives and upcoming events, visit the Brodhead Watershed Association website or call 570-839-1120.
