Last week during our annual Millennium Society member party, we were honored to award Gary Conover an Excellence in Conservation and Service Award.
Gary began his involvement with Palmer in the 1980s, serving on our board or volunteering for Palmer in numerous capacities for decades. He helped steward the conservation of significant legacy projects in the region and rumor has it, even provided the office space in his realty office for Palmer's first executive director, Stu Dodge, who earned $1.00 annually. He and his wife Sally have continued to be ardent supporters of Palmer as Millennium Society and Legacy Society members. Sally was also one of the founding women behind Palmer's annual Women in Conservation celebration. We are thankful for Gary's service, guidance, and tremendous contribution to Palmer's success.
