Forest Conservationist Rob Messick

Rob MessickCousin Rob Messick was named Forest Conservationist of the Year by the North Carolina Wildlife Federation and the Governor’s office at the 2007 Governor’s Conservation Achievement Awards this past Saturday.

I have to believe that there is no one more knowledgeable about old-growth forest in North Carolina than my cousin Rob. While he certainly gets a lot of recognition from his friends, family, and local media; this is an honor that is well deserved.

Congratulations Rob. Way to go.
