Audubon Medal

I had previously mentioned Rich Louv being the next recipient of the Audubon Medal for his work with Children and Nature. Here's a formal press release on the honor.
"Louv's success in building public awareness and action to address "Nature Deficit Disorder" represents a vital contribution to both the future of our environment and the health of our children," said Audubon President John Flicker. "It will fall on the shoulders of our next generation to address the huge environmental problems of today and the new challenges that lie ahead so it is critical that we narrow the divide between young people and the natural world."
