The Goodhue-Elkins Award has been presented annually since 1995 to an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the study of New Hampshire birds. The award is named for Charles Goodhue, one of the state’s great pioneer birders, and Kimball Elkins, the model of critical observation and insightful record-keeping.
While Goodhue-Elkins awardees typically have made their contributions to bird study as volunteers, primarily professional contributions also may be considered that represented a level of commitment to the study of New Hampshire’s birds above and beyond their vocation. Current New Hampshire Audubon staff members are not eligible to receive this award, except under exceptional circumstances.
