On Thursday, November 10th, 2016, WTI received the ‘Audubon A Award’ from The Massachusetts Audubon Society. The Audubon A is given to organizations and individuals whose efforts have bettered the quality of the environment. WTI was recognized for our reforestation work in Worcester for the past 7 years. This award is only given to one or two recipients in the entire state each year. We know that there are many environmentally focused agencies who do great work in Massachusetts so we feel particularly honored by receiving it.
Additionally, Senators Harriette Chandler and Michael Moore issued an Official Citation from the Commonwealth to congratulate us on receiving the Audubon A. We are very fortunate to have received so much encouragement for our work and thank the Massachusetts Senate for honoring us.
Thank you to all of the people who have helped us over the years with funding, partnership and guidance. Particularly, thank you to our Steering Committee and our community partners. And a special thank you to Tower Hill Botanic Garden who has taken us on as an independent program. WTI has been honored to receive our recent accolades on behalf of our community who cares about the trees!
