DICK CARTER WINS AMERICAN LANDS CONSERVATION AWARD
The 2003 American Lands Conservation Award was presented to High Uintas Preservation Council Coordinator DICK CARTER in Sacramento on October 19. The Award honors a citizen conservationist for his or her outstanding individual leadership and distinguished service to preserving and protecting the nation's natural and historic resources for the benefit of their communities and future generations.
Recipients of the Award are recognized for building partnerships that lead to the preservation of open space, wildlife habitat, and sites that preserve a sense of place. Recipients are honored for their work to protect coastlines, river corridors, forestlands, farmland, rangeland, and historic sites.
Introducing a broad collection of commentaries and letters submitted in Dick's honor to the Conservation Fund in July, nominator Wayne McCormack wrote, "A measure of Dick's accomplishments is the degree to which others have turned to him for guidance, how he has impacted public opinion, and how he has influenced the community in which he has served."
Congratulations, Dick, for your decades of work on behalf of Utah's wild land and creatures for all of us. We are all so very proud of you!
