Our own Keith Wentworth and Thor Hanson are the recipients of 2017 Finnie Awards from the Stewardship Network of the San Juans. They were among six recipients announced over Earth Day weekend, chosen for their outstanding contributions over the past year as stewards of our island community.

You can read all about it here:

Quoting from the official citation: “Winners Thor Hanson and Keith Wentworth co-chaired the Steering Committee that brought the Campaign for Mt. Grant to its successful conclusion this past January. From Craig Canine, who nominated them, ‘without Thor and Keith’s tireless, resourceful, and persistent leadership, the 141-acre Mount Grant/Lawson Ridge property might have had to revert to the seller. Instead, it’s now permanently protected as a public nature preserve.’”

Well done and thanks again, Thor and Keith!
