Linda Conlin receives award for watershed conservation work

The Carson Water Subconservancy District presented Linda Conlin with the 2010 Andy Aldax Carson River Watershed Award for exemplary service in conservation and protection of the Carson River Watershed.

This award was created in 2007 to recognize individuals or organizations for significant contributions in promoting and achieving the Carson River Watershed Vision Statement. Conlin was nominated for founding the River Wranglers, a program that promotes high school student mentoring to teach younger children about environmental stewardship in the Carson River watershed.

Conlin’s dedicated service over the past 15 years has helped to plan and organize various programs and events including Conserve and Celebrate the Carson River Workdays, Trout in the Classroom, Make a Splash with Project WET and Snapshot Day, as well as the Carson River Watershed Interactive Learning Center at the Northern Nevada Children’s Museum.

Conlin received the Andy Aldax Carson River Watershed Award at the CWSD Board meeting Jan. 20.
