Applause for Zwinger

Local naturalist and author Ann Haymond Zwinger will receive the Stuart P. Dodge Award for Conservation Leadership from the Palmer Land Trust on Tuesday at Colorado College.

It falls during the college's annual State of the Rockies Conference. Ann is a wonderful lady and friend to all in the outdoors. The presenation, with light buffet and wine, is 5-7 p.m. in Gaylor Hall at Worner Campus Center. It's $50, but half is tax-deductible, so what's that, in the end? Dinner, glass of win and a movie with Snowcaps?

More info here and 632-3236.

In case you're wondering, the Palmer Land Trust's mission is to permanently safeguard the heritage of Southeastern Colorado communities through voluntary land preservation.

Yes, Ann Zwinger deserves great respect and admiration of her life's work. Her books deserve far more attention than they get, especially in this region.

If Teller County were to have an official book, it certainly would be "Beyond the Aspen Grove", a fantastic natural history of this beautiful area.
