Ecology award



Scarborough resident Eddie Woodin, third from left, was awarded the town’s 2012 eco-Excellence Award winner. The awards are presented annually by ecomaine, a nonprofit municipal-owned single-sort recycling and waste-to-energy operation, for contributions in preserving local ecology. Scarborough is an owner community. Woodin was nominated for his activism in preserving the fragile ecosystem of the town’s saltwater marsh. As a volunteer, he installed bird boxes at the edge of marshland owned by the Scarborough Land Trust and has given away more than 100 kestrel and flicker nesting boxes in Maine and New Hampshire. With Woodin, from left, are ecomaine Board Chairman Michael Bobinsky, Town Councilor Karen D’Andrea, Marla Zando, Scarborough Public Works Director Mike Shaw and ecomaine General Manager Kevin Roche.
