"He who plants a tree plants a hope" - Lucy Larcom
In this issue...
a Grosse Ile resident of 25 years, was honored at the annual meeting for
his hard work and dedication in the conservation arena by receiving GINLC's
2006 Conservation Award. Tom, a Ford Motor retiree, has been staying active
by volunteering his time, energy and his carpentry skills to the conservancy.
He has constructed several observation platforms at the Nature Area and
has been involved with many other improvements around the island. His
labor has led to a much more enjoyable experience for the many visitors
to the Nature Area. Tom is always willing to give a hand, whether it's
moving wood chips for Landscape for Learning projects at the schools or
working with our local churches to organize a Faith & Environment
Conference. This winter, along with Margarete Hasserodt (the 2005 Conservation
Award honoree), he built tree seedling boxes for the Nature Area.
