Tom Reeve Given National Honor: Ferguson Award Honoree of 2015

Long-time Lopez Island resident, Tom Reeve, was given The Trust for Public Land’s highest honor, The Douglas P Ferguson Award, at an event held at the Seattle Arboretum on Thursday evening.

The Trust for Public Land gives the Ferguson Award, which is named after one of the organization’s founders, to recognize outstanding service and extraordinary commitment to conserving land for people across America. Mr. Ferguson, now an emeritus Board Member, was there to see Tom receive his award, along with previous honorees.

“Tom’s contribution to our mission has been extraordinary from the moment he first volunteered to join our Washington state advisory board in 2002,” says Will Rogers, President and CEO of The Trust for Public Land. “His drive and passion are examples to all of us every day, and the legacy of land he is helping to create across America will last forever.”

The award was presented by Page Knudsen-Cowles, President of The Trust for Public Land’s National Board of Directors, and Keola Beamer, one of Hawaii’s foremost musicians made a special appearance at the event as a special tribute to Tom and his home state.
