KEMMERER – The Public Lands Foundation (PLF) recognized the Willow Creek Coordinated Resource Management Plan Team (Team) Dec. 18, with a Landscape Stewardship Award which honors private citizens and organizations that work to advance and sustain community-based stewardship on landscapes that include public lands administered by the Bureau of Land Management.

Team members include adjacent landowners and permittees, Bureau of Land Management employees, Natural Resource Conservation Service permittees, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Uinta County Conservation District, Uinta County Cattlewomen, Uinta County Extension Office, U.S. Forest Service, Wyoming Department of Agriculture, Wyoming Game and Fish Department, and the Wyoming State Forester.

Team resource projects have improved habitat for pronghorn, elk, deer, moose, beaver, sage-grouse and Colorado River cutthroat trout. In addition, the team has fostered years of community involvement, including educational events such as grade school students planting willow cuttings and aspen and conducting water quality tests, and provided educational tours and programs.

The PLF also presented Landscape Stewardship Certificates of Appreciation to Bill Sears and George Collins for their work on the Albert Creek Allotment and to Carson Hughes for his volunteer work with archeological, paleontological, rangeland and riparian monitoring, native seed collecting and recreation.

The ceremony was held at the BLM Kemmerer Field Office with PLF member Don Schramm presenting the award and certificates. “The Public Lands Foundation is pleased to recognize the Willow Creek Coordinated Resource Management Plan Team, Bill Sears, George Collins and Carson Hughes for their invaluable contributions and for maintaining the tradition of public stewardship of America’s lands,” stated Schramm.
