Cincinnati Nature Center's Wood Thrush Award was established in October 2012, with the inaugural award going to Helen C. Black for a lifetime of dedication to land conservation and stewardship.
The purpose of the award is to recognize individuals, families, organizations or businesses for significant commitment to land conservation and stewardship in the Greater Cincinnati region or with connection to the Greater Cincinnati region.
Wood Thrush Award Honorees are selected based on their contributions and work for land conservation and stewardship through advocacy and raising awareness, mentorship of others, personal financial
contributions, institutional leadership, volunteer efforts, passionate support, and/or a connection to Cincinnati Nature Center's mission.
Proceeds from the Wood Thrush Awards Dinner benefit the Helen C. Black Conservation Fund which is used to preserve and protect Cincinnati Nature Center's lands through land acquisition and conservation easements.
John A. Ruthven has been selected to receive Cincinnati Nature Center's second Wood Thrush Award in October 2013.
