Ellen Mosley-Thompson (Geography) and Lonnie Thompson (Earth Sciences) received the Margaret Douglas Medal from The Garden Club of America (GCA) in recognition of their notable service to the cause of conservation education.
Quoting the press release from ASC Update: “In honoring the Thompsons, the GCA saluted them as 'legendary pioneers' and commended their 40 years of work as scientists contributing to the documentation of climate change. Founded in 1913, GCA is a nonprofit national organization composed of 200 clubs with some 18,000 members who devote energy and expertise to projects in their communities and across the United States." Very impressive achievement and it is important to note the extremely broad reach and scope of this interest group.
