Turtle Island Restoration Network is proud to report that SPAWN volunteer, Mel Wright, is the winner of the 2016 Edie Robinson Community Service Award (ERCSA) for his positive achievement, devotion and community building.

Because ERCSA announces award winners every two years, Mel’s 2016 award was just made public. At the same awards ceremony and celebration Bar-B-Q, the 2017 ERCSA award winner, Joe Walsh, was also honored.

Mel was nominated by three different organizations: Turtle Island Restoration Network, the Valley Broom Removal Crew (The Extractigators), and the Planning Group, Wilderness Way.
