LandPaths Executive Director Craig Anderson has been recognized by Bay Nature Institute and Magazine as a "Local Hero" for his community-based conservation work. Craig will receive the 2014 Local Hero Award for Conservation Action in Oakland in late March, with two other recipients being honored as Heroes for Youth Engagement and Environmental Education.
This well-deserved recognition for LandPaths' Executive Director of the past 16 years is a welcome affirmation for us all, that we are indeed making an impact - vis-à-vis programs that welcome everyone in our community to claim their true nature in connecting with land near their home.
"Conservation and community work, rooted in the same principle as ecology, relies on parts all being functioning and integrated for a whole and healthy system. I am deeply honored to receive this award - and from Bay Nature Institute - and know it speaks to our entire movement of volunteers, staff, board, partnering agencies and landowners. To have had the years in my post to lead and be advised by those of heart is the greatest award of all."
