Andrea Mackenzie Lauded for Conservation Action and Vision
Andrea has been awarded the Bay Nature’s prestigious 2016 Local Hero for Conservation Action award, which recognizes leadership in conservation of the natural landscapes, wildlife and flor of the SF Bay Area.
“I am grateful to receive this award, while recognizing that major conservation gains are not won by individuals but by a determined and vigilant community of people,” said Andrea Mackenzie.
Hiking Leadership Training
The Open Space Authority is partnering with Bay Area Wilderness Training to host 3 courses designed to train teachers and youth workers how to plan, organize, and lead fun and safe hikes with youth. The training will include fun games for the trail, leave no trace, the natural history of open spaces, meal planning and more.
