Marc J. Taylor, M.D. Memorial Greenway Guided Walk
Regina Badura and Joe Ruggiero were among the 60 people that joined Southbury Land Trust (SLT) and Pomperaug River Watershed Coalition (PRWC) on October 30 for a guided walk along the Marc J. Taylor, MD Memorial Greenway as a way to honor Marc’s dedication to both organizations. Dr. Taylor, who passed away in June of 2012, is remembered as a man of great compassion who, as a medical doctor, healed the wounds and raised the spirits of his patients throughout greater Southbury. In his retirement, he turned his keen intellect and calm demeanor toward fostering coalition-based solutions for the benefit of the environment. For many years, Marc served on the Board for SLT and the PRWC, which he also co-founded. The Greenway is named in honor of the late Dr. Taylor who along with Tom Crider, both of Southbury, conceptualized an open space corridor following the Pomperaug River.
