Arnold Receives WCLT Young Environmental Leader Award

June 5, 2006 - For his enthusiasm, initiative, and dedication to improving the town’s environment, the Westborough Community Land Trust (WCLT) has selected Zachary Arnold to receive its Young Environmental Leader Award.

As a Westborough High School senior, Arnold worked this year with Westborough’s Planning Board and Conservation Commission, helping to create a database of 196 field sites to document compliance with storm water regulations. Arnold’s project, which was part of the Jobs for Bay State program, included compiling the first inventory of all detention basins and storm water catch basins in the commercial/industrial zones of Westborough, including photo documentation of their maintenance.

“I have a lot of respect for Zach. He has a very good work ethic,” says Ted Brady, chair of the Conservation Commission. “I went into the field with him quite a bit and invited him to report on his work to the Conservation Commission. Zach did a marvelous job for us.”

WCLT's Young Environmental Leader Award is given periodically to a young person in Westborough who has demonstrated an outstanding commitment and public service to the environment. Zachary Arnold is the son of Herb and Susan Arnold of 230 Ruggles Street, Westborough.
