Each year the Northeast Pennsylvania Audubon Society (NEPAS) presents a $4000 scholarship to a graduating senior who plans to pursue a career in an environmental field.

This year’s scholarship winner is Wesley Conklin, son of Trista and Brad Conklin of Greentown. Wesley is a 2019 graduate of Wallenpaupack Area High School in Hawley. He will be attending the University of Pittsburgh to study Civil and Environmental Engineering.

The Northeast Pennsylvania Audubon Society is proud to support the youth of our area through college and camp scholarships. The funding for these scholarships is generated from the Art and Craft Festival held each July in Hawley, PA. This year’s festival will be July 20 and 21 at the Wallenpaupack Area High School.
