Sheldrake Environmental Center to Honor Community Members Dedicated to Environmental Causes
Sheldrake Environmental Center is proud to acknowledge individuals whose efforts are in line with its mission to inspire environmental awareness and action in the community, and to preserve and protect local environmental resources. For its upcoming Spring Benefit, Sheldrake will have the pleasure of honoring individuals who are making a difference. “We are thrilled to be honoring individuals who are effectively raising awareness of environmental issues in our community,” said Holly Moskow, Executive Director.
Gail Boyle, Principal of Chatsworth Avenue School, who has been a leader in bringing numerous environmental initiatives and educational opportunities to the elementary school community. Notable efforts include an Eco-footprint program, a school garden, training opportunities for teachers and the creation of an outdoor classroom.
Patricia Mulqueen, Manager of Westchester Public Affairs for Con Edison, who is known for her leadership in the nonprofit community and in particular for her dedication to environmental nonprofits. Over many years she has provided invaluable guidance which has enabled Sheldrake to become successful community partners with Con Edison. This year she went above and beyond that role by coordinating a group of volunteers for Sheldrake’s Fall Festival.
Stephanie Tomei, Joe Rogot and Maggie McGovern, the co-founders of Ward Acres Community Garden, whose role sheds light on the importance of local, sustainable food choices and has a positive impact on our local environment.
