I am very excited about the awards this year. I am a member of the OSU Extension Sapulpa Chapter. I hope I can challenge the Extemsion groups of Creek County to take on environmental projects for the coming year.
I congratulate the Kaw Nation for their environmental education outreach. Is the Kaw Nation a 'winner' this year? I read their email page and receive their publications. Their environmental staff are dedicated to helping the Kaw Nation tribal lands.
