The Fund is proud to announce that our Executive Vice President, General Counsel and a founder of the Fund, Richard Erdmann, has been awarded the prestigious American Bar Association Award for Excellence in Environmental, Energy, and Resources Stewardship for 2014.  

Established in 2002, the Award recognizes and honors achievement or leadership in areas of sustainable development or environmental or resources stewardship.  The Award was conferred on Rich at the ABA’s 22nd Fall Conference in Miami on October 10th.  More information – and distinguished past recipients of this Award – can be found on ABA’s web site.

All of us at the Fund extend our warm congratulations to Rich on his well-earned recognition for a career marked by extraordinarily productive years of clear vision and leadership for land conservation throughout America.
