Nominations Now Open For Outstanding Environmental Volunteer Award

Submission Deadline Friday, August 25th

Pomona, NY - County Executive Ed Day and the Division of Environmental Resources are now accepting nominations for the 26th Annual County Executive’s Outstanding Environmental Volunteer Award.

The County Executive's Outstanding Environmental Volunteer Award recognizes environmental volunteers who care for our parks, champion our watersheds, encourage waste reduction, and enhance the beauty of Rockland’s natural environment.

To be eligible to receive the award an individual must be at least 18 years of age and a Rockland County resident. Individuals who have been nominated in the past, but not chosen, are eligible to be re-nominated.

County Executive Day will honor this year’s winner during a tree dedication ceremony at Kennedy Dells Park on Monday, September 18th, 2023, at 11 am.
