Mark Longley, a member of the Sandwich Climate Action Coalition steering committee, was recently awarded the 2022 High Watch Award for Volunteer Service by the Green Mountain Conservation Group.
The award is presented annually to “a community member who has gone above and beyond to make a difference to the conservation of shared natural resources in the Ossipee Watershed.” GMCG honored Mark for his commitment to groundwater monitoring and protection and his dedicated service on several GMCG committees and our Board of Directors.
