Paul Carlson honored for conservation work
Paul Carlson of Land Trust for the Little Tennessee was named Outstanding Conservationist in the 2015 Roosevelt-Ashe awards given out by Wild South, an environmental organization that works in several southern states.
Carlson, LTLT’s founding director, led LTLT for 18 years, helping to conserve and protect thousands of acres before transitioning from the role director to senior advisor at the end of 2014.
“We’re inspired by these conservation heroes who have given so much of themselves to help save wild places and wild things in the South,” said Ben Colvin, Wild South’s development director. “Their stories remind us that the greatest conservation achievements are rooted in personal passion.”
