On December 4, 2013, Rivers Alliance honored Lynn Werner as Connecticut's Environmental Champion of 2013.
The award was in recognition of her inspiring leadership in protecting the Housatonic River watershed, the regional Highlands, the wetlands and water courses in her hometown of Kent and throughout Connecticut. Ms. Werner brings to the vocation of environmental stewardship good science, good sense, good humor, dedication, diplomacy, and super energy.
Ms. Werner is best known as the executive director of the Housatonic Valley Association (HVA), a stewardship organization for the tri-state watershed of the river. She has held this position since 1995, invigorating the organization and substantially expanding its reach and scope to protect drinking waters, rivers and important watershed lands across 83 communities.
In her hometown of Kent, she is chairman of the Inland-Wetlands and Watercourses Commission. She is also a board director of the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters, an advisory director of the Pomperaug River Watershed Coalition, and a founding board director of Earthshare New England and Earthshare National. She is also a founding director and past-president of Rivers Alliance.
This is the first time in its twenty-year history that Rivers Alliance has so honored a board member. Board, staff, and friends enthusiastically supported this break with tradition. Ms. Werner has helped countless individuals, groups, and government officials find ways and means to protect the waters of the state and the region.
