David Standley was the first director of the Massachusetts  Department  of  Environmental  Quality Engineering  (now  MassDEP), and he served for sixteen years on his local conservation commission, thirteen years as chair; more than twenty-five years on his local open space committee; was a driving force behind the creation of the open space bond program; and was recipient of  the  U.S.  EPA  Merit  Award  and  the  MACC Environmentalist of the Year Award.
