MEREDITH — Co-Chairs Deborah Corr and Dave Reilly of the Waukewan and Winona Watershed Protection Association announce that WWWPA Vice chairman, Janan Hays of New Hampton, has won the B. Kimball Ayers Award which is given by the Lakes Region Planning Commission for "Outstanding Contributions to the Lakes Region Environment" in memory of B. Kimball Ayers, Jr. of Moultonborough "who faithfully and persistently worked to maintain and improve the environmental quality of the Lakes Region."
She was nominated for this award by the selectmen of the town of New Hampton, who stated, among her many accomplishments, in their letter to the LRPC: "Janan Hays is an outstanding, dedicated citizen, which webelieve is evident by her contributions to environmental education and protection of the lakes and wildlife in the Lakes Region. Janan has spent countless hours being a champion for the protection of the New Hampshire lakes, particularly Lake Waukewan and Lake Winona."
A small sampling of her environmental endeavors include being a very active Loon Preservation Committee volunteer since 1987 monitoring loons on Lake Waukewan and assisting LPC field biologists. Through various initiatives Janan has worked to protect the pristine quality and filtration ability of the Snake River wetlands. She also began monitoring the water quality of the area in 2000 which formally added to the NHDES VLAP monitoring program in 2002, and she has continued to personally fund and conduct water quality monitoring work there and on some of the tributaries feeding Lake Waukewan to help NHDES gain a more complete picture
of the state of water quality on Lake Waukewan. In addition she has hosted environmental education events for shore owners and local residents and has written numerous articles for the lake community to heighten awareness of environmental concerns and pressures facing the Waukewan/Winona watershed. Janan began a NHDES Weed Watcher program on Waukewan to train volunteers how to spot aquatic invasive species and has expanded it to include other lakes in the Waukewan watershed. In 2007 she spearheaded an initiative to deal with Purple Loosestrife on Monkey Pond, and with the help of Doug Cygan of the NH Dept of Agriculture, she conducted and funded a Bio-control project by releasing the Purple Loosestrife eating beetle which was successful in halting the spread of Loosestrife to Waukewan.
