New London couple given EPA lifetime achievement award
On Tuesday afternoon the Wilsons stood in Boston’s historic Faneuil Hall to receive the Environmental Protection Agency’s Environmental Merit Award for Lifetime Achievement.
The Wilsons were nominated for the award by the Loon Preservation Committee, the New Hampshire Lakes Association, and the Pleasant Lake Protective Association for their work on behalf of those organizations.
Kittie Wilson has been involved with the association for more than 20 years, serving as a board member and secretary for most of that time. She currently chairs the association’s Wildlife Committee.
“I’m probably most proud and most pleased with our progress with the nesting loons. They have two little chicks each year,” Kittie Wilson said.
The Wilsons’ nomination for the award received endorsements from several state and federal elected officials, including both of New Hampshire’s senators.
“John and Kittie have shown incredible dedication to protecting our lakes, watershed and wildlife in New Hampshire’s Lakes Region and the U.S. EPA Environmental Merit Award for Lifetime Achievement is a fitting recognition of their hard work,” Shaheen said.
