PAST AWARD WINNERS
FEDERAL LAND MANAGER – U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service – Scott Glup
As the Project Leader at Litchfield Wetland Management District, in Minnesota, Scott Glup has shown himself to be an innovative and involved federal land manager through his work with local Boy Scout groups enhancing native habitat on Service Waterfowl Production Areas. The local troop contributed over two hundred hours of service removing buckthorn and other undesirable trees from Weber Waterfowl Production Area. In doing so, they qualified for a special “50-Miler Award” badge which required canoeing or boating, hiking, trip planning and community service in the outdoors. By working with the Scouts, Scott helped to foster a spirit of public lands stewardship among youths. The project touched not only the Boy Scouts, but also Girl Scouts, parents and siblings, thereby increasing the reach of the spirit of stewardship. His work truly reflects the mission of the Take Pride in America program.
Deputy Secretary of the Interior, David Hayes, accepting the award, is Scott Glup, joining him, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Deputy Director, Jay Slack, and Director of Take Pride in America, Lisa Young.
