We've been lauding the efforts of Mary Burger for years and followed her (panting) on trails that weave through the forest on Pikes Peak. Now, her work is officially noted. Mary, the driving force behind Friends of the Peak, was presented with a Colorado Land Stewardship Award by Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado Thursday night in Denver. The award is given each year to a person or group "who have demonstrated continued inspirational leadership, vision, or personal engagement in the hands-on preservation and enhancement of the mountains, plains and rivers that make Colorado an unparalleled place to live and play."
Here's all we have to say: Way to go, Mary.
