At its Annual Meeting on November 9th, 2018, the Warren Land Conservation Trust presented its 2018 Distinguished Service Award to Wenley Ferguson, Director of Habitat Restoration for Save the Bay.
Wenley is almost synonymous with vital projects to restore and protect marsh environments throughout Rhode Island. In conjunction with the Warren Land Conservation Trust, she led a large-scale effort to restore the organization’s primary property, Jacob’s Point, beginning in the late ‘90s and continuing through 2017. Currently she is assisting the organization with its efforts at the recently acquired Haile Farm Preserve. She is an expert in “marsh migration” and is a strong advocate for preserving property along the Palmer River. She is currently assisting us in identifying further properties for conservation and marsh habitat protection.
The WLCT expresses its sincere gratitude to Wenley for all she has done and continues to do for the WLCT and the state.
