Bay Foundation seeks award nominations

The Chesapeake Bay Foundation is calling for nominations for its 2002 Conservationist and Environmental Educator of the Year Awards. Winners will receive a bronze osprey bust by Chesapeake sculptor David Turner. The Chesapeake Bay Foundation must receive all nominations by Sept. 13. Nomination forms can be downloaded from CBF's Web site,

Conservationist of the Year nominees can include any individual, organization, institution or business. Nominations are evaluated on the beneficial impact of the nominee's actions on the Chesapeake Bay, its tributaries, and watershed. The long-term effect and innovation of the nominee's achievements are also considered. This award was established in 1980 to recognize superlative service and commitment to the restoration and protection of the Chesapeake Bay.

Environmental Educator of the Year nominees include any individual in the environmental education field. Nominations are evaluated for the impact of the nominee's actions on the advancement of environmental education, potential for broad application and the degree to which the actions inspire others to Save the Bay. The award was established in 1997 to recognize an individual in the field of education who has contributed significantly to the understanding of the bay ecosystem through an academic program. Last year's winner was Robert Nixon, founder of the Earth Conservation Corps.

Both awards give preference to nominees whose efforts support the mission and programs of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and whose efforts address critical environmental issues. Nominations may be made by the individuals or group involved in the activity, or by a third person or party. Activities for which nominations are submitted need not have happened in the current year. Awards will be presented in January 2003.
