RECOGNITION & AWARDS
CALIFORNIA SENATE RESOLUTION (October 2007) (more)
Senator Dave Cox, 1st Senatorial District, "publicly acknowledges, and with appreciation, proudly recognizes the Quincy Library Group on their 15 years of invaluable and dedicated public service to the people and resources of Plumas, Lassen, Sierra, Shasta, Butte, Nevada and Placer Counties, and extends to them best wishes that their indomitable efforts will continue in the future."
FRANCIS RAYMOND AWARD (August 1999)
The Francis Raymond Award is presented by the California Board of Forestry.
GOVERNOR'S ENVIRONMENTAL AND ECONOMIC LEADERSHIP AWARD (December 1997)
"This trailblazing group did what no one else had been able to accomplish in Northern California's forest communities -- bring together the local government, timber industry, and environmental interests to work together in harmony. The Group adopted a Community Stability Proposal managing three national forests and obtained funding from the U. S. Forest Service to reduce forest fuel, restore watersheds and create a monitoring plan." (Editor's Note: To be technically correct the Quincy Library Group has not obtained funds from the U. S. Forest Service. The three forests within the sphere of the QLG influence have received supplemental funding to begin to implement the elements of the proposal)
"The Governor's Environmental and Economic Leadership Awards are the State's highest and most prestigious environmental honor. The awards were established by Governor Wilson in 1993 to recognize outstanding achievements by organizations, individuals, and programs that successfully balance environmental protection and conservation with sustainable economic development. The awards are presented for accomplishments in environmental management, environmental restoration and rehabilitation, environmental economic partnerships, and innovation."
SIERRA NEVADA ALLIANCE ANNUAL AWARD (1996)
The Frank Wells Last Best Place Award- To the Quincy Library Group, the California Wilderness Coalition and the Friends of the River for their successful efforts to halt the Barkley Salvage Timber Sale and protect the watershed of Deer Creek, a roadless area adjacent to the Ishi Wilderness and one of the last remaining spawning grounds of the spring run chinook salmon.
SIERRA BUSINESS COUNCIL FIRST 2020 AWARD (October 1996)
Recognized for setting a new standard for restoring civic debate and developing a common vision for their forests, their watersheds and their communities.
