    Chouinard Receives AAC Brower Award

    Bend, Oregon - The American Alpine Club presented its prestigious David R. Brower Award for conservation to Yvon Chouinard this Saturday, March 31.  A quote from the American Alpine Club's announcement:

    The Brower Award, created in 1991, recognizes leadership and commitment to preserving mountain regions worldwide. The awardee, whose active personal role deserves public recognition, has made an important difference as a pathfinder, innovator and on the ground contributor who has motivated others to take action.

    Chouinard, an AAC member since 1963, has long pushed the organization to deepen its commitment to conservation. He calls the recent Alpine Conservation Partnership, announced in January with a $150,000 lead gift from the Argosy Foundation, “the biggest thing the AAC has ever done in the conservation arena.”
