Nominations closed at the end of August, and the 9th annual Eleanor Stopps Environmental Leadership Award will be presented on 3 October 2013 at the Marine Science Center Breakfast in Fort Worden Commons, beginning at 8:00 am. In addition to this annual tribute named in Eleanor’s honor, work is nearing completion for a sculpture in recognition of the story of the Protection Island National Wildlife Refuge and Eleanor’s pivotal role in that story. The sculpture will be installed at the Northwest Maritime Center.

Donations can be made by credit card via the PayPal button to the right, or checks can be sent directly to the bank at the address shown at the right.
