Casco Baykeeper Wins EPA’s Lifetime Achievement Award

Posted on Apr 26, 2012

On April 25th, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency presented Casco Baykeeper Joe Payne with its 2012 Environmental Merit Award for a lifetime of advocacy for clean water. Friends of Casco Bay staff members, Joe’s wife Kim–the Keeper of the Keeper, regional waterkeepers, and EPA colleagues cheered Joe as he stepped onto the stage at Boston’s historic Faneuil Hall to receive his award for, as one EPA staffer put it, 20 years of “awesomeness.”
