Our congratulations to Richard Craig – amazing volunteer and chairperson of the Trees for Pease effort, who has won the Mayor’s 2010 Environmental Awareness Award:

Here’s what the press release said about Richard:

“Richard Craig’s “Trees For Pease” project is a “grass roots, tree roots” solution to the problem of deforestation and environmental decline in the Pease Park portion of the Shoal Creek Greenbelt. Since its inception the program has raised close to $100,000, and scores of volunteers have joined in planting 333 trees, installing irrigation systems, and covering barren ground with moisture-retaining mulch.”
