On April 7th 2021, SUFC Vice-Chair Rachel Holmes of The Nature Conservancy accepted the LAF 2020 Founders’ Award. Rachel shared our values in an acceptance speech and participated in a panel discussion with 2020 LAF Medal Recipient Bill Johnson, professor of landscape architecture and Dean of University of Michigan’s School of Natural Resources.
We thank our members for making our work possible and for tirelessly fighting for tree equity and urban forestry progress nationwide. SUFC shared our gratitude for this recognition with a tweet later that day.
