Pat Knight and Tammy Laverty selected for the Bergen Audubon/Harold Feinberg Conservation Award 2022 !
One of the best things about leading Bergen Audubon Society as the president has been the opportunity to meet many devoted, hardworking people in many small communities in our area that are committed to conservation and making the environment a better place for their neighbors and the wildlife around them. These unsung heroes have given of themselves with little recognition and often with much personal sacrifice.
The board members of Bergen County Audubon Society are proud to announce our annual Bergen County Audubon / Harold Feinberg Conservation Award for 2022 will go to Pat Knight and Tammy Laverty for the their many years of hard work at the BCAS Butterfly garden at Overpeck county park. Pat and Tammy work year round at restoring and preserving the butterfly/Pollinator habitat at the garden and educating the public on the benefits of native plants and the wildlife that visit the garden.
I have had the honor and pleasure of working with these two great women for almost ten years . through all kinds of weather and every kind of adversity their devotion to making the world a better place for both people and wildlife has never waivered , and they have always done it with love, kindness and grace.
