Cathy Pabich from Algoma will be named a Champion of Conservation by the Lakeshore Natural Resource Partnership and the Lake Michigan Stakeholders in August. The awards honor those whose exceptional conservation work impacts the Lake Michigan area. Sherrill Anderson, Regional Outreach Coordinator for the Lakeshore Natural Resource Partnership, said Pabich is being recognized for her outstanding work to engage local government and community members in clean water efforts.
A monetary component of the awards goes to a non-profit organization of the honoree’s choice. Other honorees were Wendy Lutzke from the Wisconsin Maritime Museum, Trout Springs Winery as the business champion, and the Wisconsin Clean Marina Program as the organization champion; Senator Tammy Baldwin will receive the honorary champion award as a policymaker. The awards will be given out on August 11 as part of Lake Michigan Day. To learn more about Lake Michigan Day or register for the event, you can visit the link below.
