Ellen Ambuhl Conservation Award

Norma Curtis, Chair

As chair of the Ellen Ambuhl Conservation Award I am seeking a recipient for our 2016 and 2017 state conventions. We have presented an award to North Coast Land Conservancy, Columbia Gorge Fruit Growers, the Frank Lloyd Wright’s Gordon House in Silverton, Oregon, and most recently the Kalmiopsis Audubon Society.

I am asking all district directors to please search your area, talk to your clubs and see if there is a person or group who have helped conserve the treasures that we are so blessed with in Oregon and fit our Conservation Pledge.  I am sure there are many OSFGC garden club members that are not even aware of this award and will probably know of potential award recipients.

To apply for the award send me a simple book of evidence by April 15, 2016 or 2017. Recipient may be an individual member or non-member, club, district or civic group. There is a $100 prize for the winner. If you need help preparing a book of evidence. I will share my past books of evidence as a helpful guide.

Please contact me if you have any questions.
