2008 Governor’s Award for Environmental Excellence

Heron’s Eye Communications was officially presented with a 2008 Governor’s Award for Environmental Excellence during a ceremony and reception at Grey Towers National Historic Site, which included representatives of the regional and state conservation community.

Mike Bedrin, Director of the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection’s Northeast Region, presented the award to Heron’s Eye Co-Founders Krista Gromalski and Sandy Long to recognize the firm’s work on Nature’s Keepers, an inspirational documentary film about Pike County’s 150-year history of land stewardship and those who are continuing that legacy today.

Paul Macknosky, District Director of Congressman Christopher Carney’s office, also presented Heron’s Eye with a Certificate of Congressional Recognition. Earlier, Senator Lisa Baker presented the firm with a citation of congratulations.

Environmental Excellence & Economic Development

Governor’s Awards are presented annually by the Pennsylvania DEP to recognize innovative projects that demonstrate environmental stewardship while promoting economic development in PA.

Nature’s Keepers’ non-profit partner is the Delaware Highlands Conservancy, a local land trust serving Pike and Wayne counties, in PA, and Sullivan and Delaware counties, in NY.

Nature’s Keepers was made possible by a grant from the PA Film Office, major sponsors Hotel Fauchere and Davis R. Chant Realtors, as well as gifts from hundreds of regional individuals and businesses.
