NLC founding (and continuing) Coordinating Committee member Michael Whitfield honored
At the Land Trust Alliance’s annual Rally, Michael Whitfield was awarded the 2018 Kingsbury Browne Conservation Leadership Award and Fellowship. Michael, a founding leader of the Network for Landscape Conservation and a continuing coordinating committee member, was recognized for a career of contributions to the conservation community and for his visionary leadership in marrying landscape-scale thinking with a community-focused approach. You can read Michael’s remarks from the award dinner here. Late last year, Michael also sat down to pen a reflection piece for us on his more than 40-year career in conservation — the perspective that Michael shares in the piece makes clear that his leadership in the field continues. Join us in congratulating Michael, and in reflecting upon his vision and what it means for us as practitioners working to conserve the landscapes in which we live.
