WE'VE BEEN HONORED!
On October 30, 2019, the New Braunfels Parks Department recognized CCCA for its contribution to conservation with the Theodore Roosevelt award. Elizabeth Bowerman, CCCA President, first row middle, received the award on behalf of CCCA volunteers.
One of President Theodore Roosevelt's most lasting contributions to the world was the permanent preservation of the some of the most unique natural resources in the United States. During a convention address in 1907, the President noted "...The conservation of natural resources is the fundamental problem. Unless we solve that problem, it will avail us little to solve all others." Named in recognition of our 26th President, this award recognizes a citizen or group who advocates for studying, teaching, documenting and preserving the natural resources in New Braunfels.
What an honor to be recognized for CCCA's commitment to conservation.
