Summaries of our winners’ accomplishments in the BLM Volunteer Program are attached for your information.
A national panel of BLM and partner representatives selected the award winners from more than 35nominations submitted by BLM State Offices. The winners were selected for their exceptional contributions to conservation and management of the public lands. We thank all of the offices that submitted nominations; as in the past, there were many great candidates deserving of recognition.
The winning volunteers and BLM employee winners will be honored at a special awards ceremony on May 10, 2007, in Washington, D.C. The BLM Washington Office will pay associated travel costs for the winners or, in the case of the group, a winner representative.
