Reminder: 2002 National Wetlands Awards Nominations Due December 15

Environmental Law Institute


*Call for Nominations for 2002 National Wetlands Awards**




Deadline for nominations: December 15, 2001




Nomination forms are currently available from the Environmental Law


Institute for the 2002 National Wetlands Awards.




The Awards program honors individuals from across the United States.


Awardees demonstrate extraordinary effort, innovation, and excellence


in wetland conservation, research, or education through programs or


projects at the regional, state, or local level. All Awards are made


to individuals, not to organizations. (Please note that federal employees


are not eligible for recognition in this program.)




The five categories for the National Wetlands Awards are:


o Education/Outreach,


o Science Research,


o Volunteer Leadership,


o Land Stewardship and Development, and


o Outstanding Wetlands Program Development




A Selection Committee composed of wetland experts drawn from business,


conservation organizations, and state and federal government will


select the winners from among nominations received. The awards will be


presented during May 2002 in a ceremony held in Washington, DC on


Capital Hill.




Each National Wetlands Awardee provides a shining example of how


individuals can make a difference in wetlands protection and


restoration. The work of Awardees educates the public and neighbors in


their communities about the value of wetlands, the programs that are


available to protect and restore wetlands, and how cooperation with


grassroots organizations, educational organizations, private


landowners, and federal, state and local government agencies can serve to protect


a valuable resource in a constructive manner.




The program is organized by the Environmental Law Institute with the


generous co-sponsorship of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency,


Natural Resources Conservation Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife


Service, USDA Forest Service, and National Marine Fisheries Service.
