Husky green Award winner: Shelby Cramer

Shelby Cramer’s path to the Husky Green Award started with a simple question.

“I was walking with my little sister, and she randomly asked me what this tree was, this tree that was outside our house for years and year and years,” Shelby said. “I didn’t know what to tell her because I didn't know what that tree was, and that was kind of a light bulb moment. I felt a weird sense of shame in not knowing my own place.”
