Madison Audubon Society award

Madison Audubon Society has just announced its 2009 awards and Kathie and I are pleased that we are to be a recipient. Here is the announcement:

"The Cliff Germain Award for Excellence in Community-Based Restoration will be presented to Tom and Kathie Brock of Madison. The Brocks purchased 140 acres near Black Earth in the 1980s and since then they have worked tirelessly to restore prairie, savanna, woodlands, and wetlands, including one of the highest quality savanna restorations in the Midwest. Their Pleasant Valley Conservancy is open to the public for hiking and nature study and has been dedicated as a State Natural Area. Tom and Kathie have also coordinated and funded much of the management of Black Earth Rettenmund Prairie State Natural Area."

The Awards will be presented at the annual MAS banquet on Wednesday, March 18 at the UW-Madison Memorial Union.

Thanks, Madison Audubon and all those who supported our award!
