We were happy to receive this award and accompanying letter from President Obama in the mail this week. This recognition was prompted by our agency partners at the Sierra National Forest, due to our continuing service project in the John Muir Wilderness. Space is still available to join this project in California's Sierra National Forest, applauded by the White House, which runs August 11-17.
Sierra NF's Partnership Coordinator, Chor Yang, thanked WV for our "untiring commitment and unyielding dedication." We are grateful to all WV trip participants for joining in the effort to give something back as we celebrate and sustainably steward our country's wild lands.
