Each year, the Governor’s Environmental Stewardship Awards honor outstanding accomplishments in the protection and enhancement of Tennessee’s natural resources. Nominating an individual, group or organization for their achievements is a meaningful way to promote conservation and recognize effective environmental leadership in Tennessee. Nominations are currently being accepted for the 2012 Governor’s Environmental Stewardship Awards, and I am asking you to draw on your knowledge and experience to help us identify those organizations and individuals taking action to improve the quality of Tennessee’s land, air, water and recreation opportunities.
