Terry Gibson Receives Stewardship Volunteer Award

Sustainable MBA alum Terry Gibson received the Stewardship Volunteer Award of the Year from Friends of Tryon Creek in March 2013.

Gibson co-created the Friends' training program for educational stewardship guides. He implemented the training, led guided hikes and volunteered many hours doing hands-on stewardship work.

Gibson was recognized for his contributions at the Gathering of Friends annual event. Sarah Kreisman, volunteer/outreach coordinator for Tryon Creek, was one of the award presenters. Kreisman is enrolled in the MA in Interdisciplinary Studies program at Marylhurst.

The Friends of Tryon Creek are a catalyst for cultivating a lifelong relationship with nature using Tryon Creek State Natural Area, Oregon's only urban state park, as their classroom. The Friends are known throughout the region for exceptional environmental education programs and stewardship and volunteer opportunities. The 677-acre park in southwest Portland welcomes more than 385,000 visitors each year and is home to over 200 species of birds, mammals and amphibians.
