Dr. Michael Rubbo, Teatown Lake Reservation’s Director of Conservation Science, has been awarded the Department of Environmental Conservation’s 2012 Hudson River Estuary Partner Award. Dr. Rubbo’s work at Teatown has received this important distinction because it is helping to advance the Hudson River Estuary Action Agenda by promoting conservation in the Hudson River Estuary through education, outreach, and research.
As part of his conservation efforts, Dr. Rubbo oversees Teatown’s Environmental Leaders Learning Alliance (ELLA), a regional learning alliance of town-appointed volunteer environmental leaders. ELLA is composed of over 100 members from 28 municipalities in Westchester and Putnam Counties. The goal of this program is to provide training and support for local communities so that they may make more informed land use decisions. In addition to ELLA, Dr. Rubbo manages Teatown’s 875-acre preserve and conducts ecological research throughout the Hudson Hills and Highlands.
