Cousin Rob Messick was named Forest Conservationist of the Year by the North Carolina Wildlife Federation and the Governor’s office at the 2007 Governor’s Conservation Achievement Awards this past Saturday.
I have to believe that there is no one more knowledgeable about old-growth forest in North Carolina than my cousin Rob. While he certainly gets a lot of recognition from his friends, family, and local media; this is an honor that is well deserved.
Congratulations Rob. Way to go.
