2011 Environmental Stewardship Award


The Utah State University Botanical Center presented its 2011 Environmental Stewardship Award to former Senator Bob Bennett, recognizing his knowledge of Utah's physical and political geography and his efforts to encourage wise use and protection of important resources. When Bennett began his 18-year tenure as a U.S. Senator he had grown up in Salt Lake City and lived in big cities on both coasts, but made learning about and representing Utahns from rural areas a high priority. He gained great appreciation for Utah's rural and wild areas and the importance of planning and caring for water and other natural resources. To read more, click here.
