McCreary wins Bruce Wolfe Spirit of Conservation Award

DU Western Region Director of Operations Jeff McCreary recently received the Bruce Wolf Spirit of Conservation Award, recognizing his commitment to wetland and waterfowl conservation.

The San Francisco Bay Joint Venture (SFBJV), one of 18 joint ventures in North America formed under the North American Waterfowl Management Plan, established the award to recognize individuals and organizations conserving wetland habitats in the San Francisco Estuary. The inaugural award was posthumously presented to Bruce Wolfe’s family in recognition of his decades of contributions to conservation. Wolfe was a long-time SFBJV champion, served for almost 20 years on the SFBJV Management Board, and served as an executive officer of the San Francisco Bay Regional Water Quality Control Board.
