Five years ago, Jennifer Owen organized a
comprehensive group effort to preserve Spring Creek in northeast
Oklahoma. Today that group - The Spring Creek Coalition - numbers more
than 100. The creek and the watershed are out of immediate danger and
the ongoing educational programs she began are making an enormous
difference in the future prospects of this natural resource. According
to her peers, no one makes more of a contribution to this project than
Jennifer Owen and no one deserves more credit for its outstanding
success. Named Woman of the Year in 1998 by the "Progressive Farmer"
magazine, this rancher, farmer, mother and environmental activist can
add another trophy to her shelf. JENNIFER OWEN IS GOOD NEWS FOR OKLAHOMA'S ENVIRONMENT!
