“The Virginia Master Naturalist program is one of the winners of this prestigious award, earning a gold award in the category of governmental environmental programs.
“Of course, it is the wonderful work of our volunteers and the support from our sponsoring agencies and partners that earned the award for the program. It was fitting that Susan Powell (Virginia Master Naturalist volunteer,
Historic Rivers Chapter), our first VMN volunteer to complete 2500 hours of service, accepted the award on behalf of the program. Thanks, Susan, and thanks to all of our volunteers, sponsoring agencies, and partners!”
