Hale Reservation, an outdoor educational and recreational organization situated on 1,137 acres in Westwood, Mass., has named Pierce Atwood recipient of their 2018 Hale Community Service Award, largely in connection with the firm’s work in developing a solar facility at Hale. Pierce Atwood environmental, land use, and real estate partner Daniel J. Bailey has been instrumental in providing advice and counsel to Hale on this important solar project.
Dan notes that he is “exceptionally pleased and proud” of this award, and that “there are so many dedicated volunteers, board members, and others that support the Hale mission, that for Pierce Atwood to be singled out as the one community service award winner is a real honor.”
Hale Reservation began in 1918 as a result of Robert Sever Hale’s desire “to provide education which will develop intelligent, capable and responsible citizens” and to use the land “so long as it is charitable and benevolent in nature.”
Today, Hale Reservation provides a wide range of educational and recreational opportunities for thousands of children, teens, and adults of diverse backgrounds and economic status, in an environment that helps develop self-confidence, inspire a passion for learning, and encourage an appreciation for the natural environment.
The awards ceremony took place on March 8, 2018 at Hale Reservation. Here's Dan (3rd from left) accepting the 2018 Hale public service award on behalf of the firm:
