Eleanor Stopps award nominations sought

PORT TOWNSEND — Nominations for the 2022 Eleanor Stopps Environmental Leadership Award are sought by the Port Townsend Marine Science Center.

Nominations must be submitted by email to [email protected] or be received in the science center offices at Fort Worden State Park, 200 Battery Way, no later than 5 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 25.

A nomination form can be downloaded from www.ptmsc.org; or requested by calling 360-385-5582.

The award recognizes significant contributions in the protection and stewardship of the natural environment of the North Olympic Peninsula by a Clallam or Jefferson County resident.

The criteria include a successful resource conservation effort that benefits the Peninsula and its residents directly, and acting as a community catalyst for programs, initiatives or ventures that demonstrate a commitment to the future of the Earth and its biodiversity.

Also, become a model for future leaders in business and education, or has been an exemplary citizen or policymaker who has implemented decisions that — though they may entail risks — have helped area communities take the next step toward environmental sustainability.

The award pays tribute to Eleanor Stopps, whose vision, advocacy and determination exemplify the power and importance of citizen leadership, according to a news release.

The recipient will be honored at the annual science center stewardship celebration at the Fort Worden Commons in mid-October.
