North Branch Land Trust’s Volunteer Of The Year Honored
North Branch Land Trust (NBLT) honored its volunteers and presented its annual Volunteer of the Year award at a recent gathering held at Sabatini’s Bottleshop and Bar in Exeter. The recipient of this year’s Volunteer of the Year award is Michael Tonkin of Duryea. Land monitors visit NBLT’s 60 conserved land easements yearly to be certain that the properties are in compliance with the terms of the conservation agreement. After the award presentation, NBLT volunteers, members of the board, land donors, and members of the staff had the opportunity to listen to a presentation by Angie Colarusso, founder of the nonprofit Second Chance Wildlife Center in Tunkhannock. The wildlife center has saved thousands of wild animals which have been injured and/or orphaned.
