Lacawac Sanctuary Honors Dr. Clyde Goulden, William Leishear, The Dime Bank For Conservation Leadership Aug. 11

The Lacawac Sanctuary in Wayne County will honor 2 individuals and a company who have given tirelessly to Lacawac and its growth at the 3rd Annual Farm To Plate Dinner on August 11 at the Watres Lodge at the Lacawac Sanctuary, 94 Sanctuary Road in Lake Ariel, Wayne County.
The Lifetime Achievement in Research will be given to Dr. Clyde Goulden, The Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University, Philadelphia; the Lifetime Achievement in Education to The Dime Bank; and the Lifetime Achievement in Preservation will be given to William Leishear, Lacawac Trustee.
“This is a great opportunity for the community to come together,” state Craig Lukatch President, “and honor those who are making a difference in the lives of those in our community.  Without the support of our friends and volunteers, Lacawac would not be able to provide quality education programs for PreK through 12th grade students and shape the next generation of Earth stewards.”
