The Middleton Stream Team is proud to announce that Pike Messenger, a founding member and author of our WATER CLOSET blog, has received the Massachusetts Association of Conservation Commission’s (MACC) Environmental Service Award for Outstanding Conservation Leadership and Education. This was presented at MACC’s Annual Environmental Conference last Saturday at the Holy Cross College in Worcester.

MACC annually recognizes special people  who have worked long and hard to protect our state’s natural environment with this prestigious award.

Pike Messenger is a rare person who has worked diligently over his entire lifetime to promote the conservation of fragile ecosystems particularly around our brooks, ponds, rivers, wetlands and adjacent uplands, and does so with both passion and gentlemanly good manners.

Congratulations Pike!
