Nominations sought for Bayberry Wreath Award

Thu, 02/21/2019 - 4:30pm

This year marks the 36th anniversary of one of Block Island’s signature recognitions: the annual Bayberry Wreath Award recognizing outstanding contributions to the health of the island’s ecology.

If there is someone you would like to honor, The Block Island Times is now accepting nominations for 2019.

Block Island is a recognized leader in conservation, and past honorees have been instrumental in this ongoing success. The Bayberry Wreath Award was established by former publishers of The Block Island Times, Peter and Shirley Wood, in 1984. (The inaugural honoree was Barbara Burak. Last year’s award recognized Ray Torrey.)

Please email Lars Trodson at or send a note to The Block Island Times, P.O. Box 278, Block Island, R.I. 02807.

Thank you!
