Each year the Southborough Open Land Foundation awards the Elaine Beals Conservation Award to a deserving Southborough resident. This year the honor went to Rhonda Russian, who retired from the Conservation Commission last year after 22 years of service.

Here’s an announcement sent along by SOLF.

SOLF held its annual meeting on May 7th. The Elaine Beals Conservation Award was presented to Rhonda Russian in recognition of her 22 years of service on the Conservation Commission and her work as an attorney at the Department of Environmental Protection. State Rep. Carolyn Dykema also presented her with a proclamation from the Massachusetts House of Representatives recognizing her environmental work.

Following the presentation, John Maguranis gave a fascinating talk on co-existing with coyotes.
