New Hampshire Audubon's board of trustees seeks nominations for the following awards to be presented at the annual meeting of the membership. The deadline for nominations is April 1.
The Tudor Richards Award is presented annually to the person who best exemplifies Tudor's love and knowledge of the outdoors and who has worked tirelessly and effectively on behalf of conservation in New Hampshire. Past recipients include Jeanie McIntyre (2008), Barry Wicklow (2007) and Brad Wyman (2006).
The Goodhue-Elkins Award is presented annually to an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the study of New Hampshire birds. The award is named for Charles Goodhue, one of the state's great pioneer birders, and Kimball Elkins, the model of critical observation and insightful record-keeping. Past recipients include Kay Dyment of Concord (2008), Sandy Turner of Lyman (2007) and Ralph Andrews of Nashua (2006).
Both awards are merit-based, and affiliation with New Hampshire Audubon is not a requirement. Nomination forms are available from the N.H. Audubon website, nhaudubon.org/awards.php or from Rebecca Suomala, 224-9909, ext. 309, bsuomala@ nhaudubon.org. Be sure to include your mailing address.
