Delaware environmental education wins National Wetlands Award

    Six people will be honored next week at the National Wetlands Award ceremony.

    They come from all over the country, but Gary Kreamer’s work is concentrated in our area. Kreamer is the education coordinator for the Delaware Division of Fish and Wildlife’s Aquatic Education Center.
    According to the awards website, Kreamer has “developed numerous wetlands programs that have educated and inspired tens of thousands of students and teachers across Delaware and beyond.”

    More specifcally, the Division of Fish and Wildlife credits him for enhancing the Delaware Adopt-A-Wetland Program, developing the Eco-Explorers Program for students and creating the “Green Eggs and Sand” program for studying horseshoe crabs and shorebirds.

    He and honorees from Montana, Arizona, Indiana, Florida and California will attend an awards ceremony May 10.
