The award was presented during a meeting of the BLM's Northwest California Resource Advisory Council. Hornbeck was commended for his work in locating and recording important historical sites, including railroad beds, water ditches, mines, cemeteries and townsites on public land managed by the Redding Field Office. In an award letter, BLM Redding Field Manager Steve Anderson said Hornbeck's work "...is providing valuable information to the BLM so that these resources...may be used for future recreational trails and historical interpretive sites." Anderson further commended Hornbeck for supporting the mission of the BLM by helping to spread the word of the "importance of our pioneer heritage."
