“Edwin” was submitted by Sarah Rose to honor the late Edwin H. Horning (1919-2008), beloved teacher, naturalist and former curator of the HLFM. Sarah has asked that the prize, a pair of Nikon birding binoculars, be kept at the HLFM and used by participants in the HLFM’s Thursday afternoon nature walks. Our thanks go to Sarah and to all who participated in this naming contest.
