Volunteer Award Winners
The annual “Making a Difference” Awards recognize exceptional volunteers who have contributed in many ways to improve our public lands. Awardees are selected in one of five categories—Outstanding Achievement, Lifetime Achievement, Outstanding Youth Achievement, Group Excellence, and Outstanding Employee support of the BLM volunteer program.
These exceptional volunteers help keep campers safe, find homes for wild horses and burros, improve water quality in our wild and scenic rivers, care for cultural artifacts, and provide environmental education, interpretation, and visitor services, as well as countless other tasks vital to the BLM and our public lands.
We congratulate all the honorees, in this and every year, who represent all those willing to stand as our partners in the stewardship of America’s public lands.
