The Conservation Alliance Outstanding Partnership Awards are given to members who provide outstanding support to Conservation Alliance grantees. We’re excited to announce Juniper Ridge as the second 2015 Outstanding Partnership Award recipient for their commitment to protecting the Berryessa Snow Mountain region. Juniper Ridge has a unique connection to the native plants found in this region, and they are deeply committed to protecting the landscape. Conservation Alliance grantee, Tuleyome, nominated Juniper Ridge for this award for their ongoing support to the Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument Campaign. Juniper Ridge will be presented with an award at The Conservation Alliance Breakfast event on August 6, 2015.
Following are a few words about this outstanding partnership from Charlotte Orr at Tuleyome:
Watch Juniper Ridge and Tuleyome talk about their connection to the Berryessa Snow Mountain region with Sacramento news station CBC 13:
Juniper Ridge partnered with Tuleyome to spread the word about protecting the Berryessa Snow Mountain Region as a national monument. To support this campaign, they donated part of their profits and supported our fundraising efforts with in-kind donations and silent auction items. We are hoping (pushing) to see a national monument designation from President Obama before the end of the year.
Juniper ridge exemplifies the conservation ethic in business practices. We are grateful for Obi and Hall’s passion for preserving our wild backyard – and are excited that Juniper Ridge won the partnership award from Conservation Alliance. They really deserve it!
