(SEATTLE WA) The regional conservation group People For Puget Sound today awarded the Warren G. Magnuson 2010 Puget Sound Legacy Award to Congressman Norm Dicks, Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge manager Jean Takekawa, and John Fabian and the Hood Canal Coalition.
The annual award, presented today at People For Puget Sound’s “New Day for Puget Sound” breakfast at the W Hotel in Seattle, recognizes individuals, groups and businesses whose work on behalf of Puget Sound make it a better place for its marine life.
