NCD's Annual Meeting was enjoyed by all that attended at the Litchfield Distillery
on Tuesday, October 18, 2016
Our 2016 annual meeting was overall a great event. Thanks to Scott Tilden for his informative and beautifully illustrated presentation on his book America's Great National Forests, Wildernesses, & Grasslands. The photographs were stunning. Scott so generously shared the challenges in creating his book and those challenges encountered by the federal government in establishing and operating the National Forest.
We also enjoyed the Litchfield Distillery's generosity in sharing their comfortable tasting room for our meeting complemented by a distillery tour and product sampling by proprietor Jack Baker.
The evening also included the presentation of awards for outstanding conservation achievements.
Conservation Advocate Award – Roberta Willis
Conservation Volunteer Award – Mary Silks
Conservation Award – Charles Berger
Conservation Award - Gordon Ridgway
Rusty Warner was voted unanimously onto the NCD Board of Directors.
Thank you for supporting our mission and our organization as we work with our 34 towns from the Massachusetts border to Newtown, by providing education and technical assistance in soil and water conservation. We are thankful for our donors, volunteers, and partners who give so generously of their money, time and energy throughout the year.
