Conservation Friends

 

Thank You, Conservation Friends

These past 60+ years of conservation progress have been possible because hundreds of local citizens took action to care for our natural resources.

The names of many of these individuals have been recorded in the District meeting minutes, annual reports, newsletters, and other publications over the years. And while we were researching this information for the 60th anniversary conservation timeline in 2009 (see PDF of timeline booklet), we compiled the names we encountered into a master list (below).

We know there are many, many more people** who have been important to conservation over the years, but whose names were not recorded. And we’d like to remedy that now.

So, if you know of someone – yourself, a friend, family member, neighbor, acquaintance, or coworker – who should be added to this list of conservation friends, please send their name(s), along with a brief sentence or two about how they were involved with the District, to wcd@wcdpa.com. The list below will be updated regularly.

Thank you to everyone who has made a difference for conservation!
