Conservation group receives award from Bush

President Bush has bestowed the nation's highest environmental honor on a Glen Burnie-based conservation group.

Maryland Save Our Streams will receive the President's Environment and Conservation Challenge Award for its volunteer efforts to identify and correct problems on the state's waterways.

"We're very honored to receive this recognition," said Brad Bradford, president of the Save Our Streams board of directors. "Since 1970, SOS volunteers have put their hands in the water and feet in the mud in order to care for their neighborhood rivers and streams."

Save Our Streams has sponsored stream surveys, monitoring programs and cleanups in Anne Arundel County along the Severn and Patuxent rivers, and Nabbs, Stony and Cox creeks.

The presidential citation was established in 1991 to promote a conservation ethic throughout the country.
