The Seal of the West Haven Center for Coastal Ecology was designed by Angus Hodge & Dean P. Palmer Jr.. Angus devised the original idea of adapting the West Haven City Seal. Dean then digitized it.
Angus's Original Sketch
The Seal is surrounded by the official title of the organization, "The West Haven Center for Coastal Ecology," and the names of its founders, "Dr. Michael and Nancy Paone and Gennaro Frumento."
The Seal represents our organization as part of the West Haven Community and a fixture at the West Haven Shoreline. The Dragonfly is in rememberance of the late Dr. Michael Paone and the legacy that he, Nancy and Gerry have given our community.
The seal may be used to represent our organization in Color or in Greyscale.
When referring to our organization our full title must be used: "The West Haven Center for Coastal Ecology"
The abbreviation WHCCE may also be used after the full title has been stated.
When referring to our summer program, the terms "Eco-Camp" or "Ecology Camp" are the only acceptable titles.
