Dinosaur National Monument employees Tamara Naumann and Emily Spencer received the National Park Service’s Intermountain Regional Wilderness Stewardship Award in recognition of their commitment to ensuring that the park’s weed management program is conducted with highest regard for the wilderness values associated with the Yampa and Green Rivers in Dinosaur National Monument according to Superintendent Mary Risser.
“I am proud of the thoughtful hard work the weed management plan represents, and I am pleased that a number of other agencies have shown a strong interest in using it as a starting point for their own river-based weed management programs,” stated Risser. “Tamara and Emily’s work demonstrates that they strive for excellence and have a strong commitment to preserving the integrity of the park’s wilderness resources.
