Our 2018 Annual Meeting featured Dr. Martha Gach, Conservation Coordinator , Mass Audubon/Broad Meadow Brook Wildlife Sanctuary and Conservation Center speaking on New England Pollinators and how to support them.  SOLF members learned about  hummingbirds and the many  types of native bees and butterflies in their role as pollinators and what we can do to help them thrive.  You can watch a recording of the meeting here.

In addition SOLF  announced the annual Elaine Beals Conservation Award to  be given to Carl Guyer for his efforts to protect the environment by  making Southborough a Green Community and encouraging recycling.  SOLF also recognized two Algonquin High School students, Shannon Provencal and Kathryn Gowdy, for their outstanding efforts in organizing Hike Southborough Day in September 2017.
