Congratulations to Jerry Neff who received the Iowa Chapter Distinguished Service Award October 4 at the Iowa Chapter Annual Dinner.  This was the only award given by the Iowa Chapter this year, and recognized Jerry’s many years of service and contributions, including being a charter member of our group, serving on the national committee to end commercial logging in national forests, and serving two years as the chapter chair, to name a few.

The event was held at the Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge near Prairie City.  Jerry led a well-attended hike through the prairie before the dinner.  It was a windy day, which made the prairie grasses, often taller than we are, wave beautifully.

Thanks for all you have done and continue to do, Jerry.
