Tremco Incorporated is extremely proud to be named the 2013 Great Blue Heron Award recipient from the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes. Tremco’s president Randy Korach will accept the award on behalf of the company on June 8th at the Center’s Green Site, Starry Night gala.
The Nature Center at Shaker Lakes established the Great Blue Heron Award in 2011 to honor “an individual or organization that exemplifies the Center’s ongoing commitment to the environment and sustainability.” The honoree must:
1. Believe in, actively demonstrate, and encourage one or more of the principles of the Nature Center’s mission “to conserve a natural area, connect people with nature, and inspire environmental stewardship.”
2. Contribute to the environmental health of the community in which he or she lives and/or works.
3. Lead by example, promoting the principles of the Nature Center’s mission in his or her daily life, and/or the organization’s daily operations.
4. Give back to the community through civic engagement and participation in community events.
From the renovation of our headquarters into a high-performance showcase, to the thousands of hours our employees volunteer to community organizations, to our commitment to helping our customers reduce the energy use and operating costs of their buildings, Tremco Incorporated embodies these ideals and is delighted to be recognized by the Center for our commitment to sustainability.
We would also like congratulate the two previous Great Blue Heron Award honorees, Fairmount Minerals and BrownFlynn, for their sustainability efforts.
The Nature Center at Shaker Lakes conserves a natural area, connects people with nature and inspires environmental stewardship. In 1971, the National Park Service named the Nature Center one of its first National Environmental Education Landmarks and subsequently designated it a National Environmental Study Area. The parklands are also on the Register of National Historic Sites; an Audubon Society Important Bird Area; and an official Wildlife Habitat site of the National Wildlife Federation. More than 25,000 walkers, runners, birders and other nature lovers visit the Center annually, and thousands of children participate in nearly 30,000 hours of curriculum-related school programming.
