Great news! AZNPS Phoenix Chapter President Cass Blodgett was nominated by the Conservation Alliance for the 2014 Cox Conserves Conservation Hero Award. Recently he was chosen as one of three finalists for this big award. His nomination was based in large part on his outstanding work for the Alliance as a lead citizen botanist, and also for his volunteer work for AZNPS, Boyce Thompson Arboretum, and other organizations.
As one of the three finalists, Cass has already been awarded $2,500 which will be donated to AZNPS! Now an online vote will be taken to determine the final winner. If Cass wins the final vote, and additional $7,500 will be donated to AZNPS.
