The White House Council on Environmental Quality recently announced the winners of the 2012 GreenGov Presidential Awards, honoring Federal agency teams and individuals who are taking innovative approaches to curbing waste, reducing energy use and saving taxpayer money in federal agency operations. Stewart B. McKinney National Wildlife Refuge in Connecticut, as part of a team led by the United States Coast Guard Academy, won the 2012 GreenGov Presidential Award in the Green Dream Team category. The refuge developed a partnership with the Sustainability Club at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy to support roseate tern management efforts on Falkner Island. The Sustainability Club also coordinated with the Military Academy at West Point, the local government, the Boy Scouts, and area high schools.
