Bacon’s longtime advocacy of landscape and wildlife conservation recently earned him the Land Trust Alliance President’s Award for Conservation on September 18, 2014. The award honors “an individual whose leadership has enriched the land conservation movement and whose contributions encourage commitment and action throughout the land trust community and private landowner community.” In presenting the award, Land Trust Alliance President Rand Wentworth said, “Mr. Bacon’s bold actions are inspiring other landowners to protect and steward their lands, encouraging them to protect America’s natural heritage to create a lasting legacy for generations to come.”
Previous recipients of the President’s Award for Conservation Leadership include the Colorado Coalition of Land Trusts in 2007, Jim Lentowski of the Nantucket Conservation Foundation in 2010, and David Beaver of the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Land Management in 2012.
