Historic Preservation Advocacy Recognized
Deborah Gangloff Invited to Attend White House Conference
Crow Canyon was recently recognized for its historic preservation advocacy with an invitation for President and CEO Deborah Gangloff to attend an invitation-only White House event in Washington, D.C. in March. During the conference, entitled the “White House Conference on Conservation: Growing America’s Outdoor Heritage and Economy,” attendees were slated to discuss the progress of the America’s Great Outdoors Initiative launched by President Obama nearly two years ago—and strategies for growing America’s outdoor heritage and economy.
Although last-minute inclement weather prevented Deborah from attending the conference, she sent a statement to Robert Bonnie in the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) secretary’s office. In introducing the letter, she wrote, “I want to express my gratitude to you, the United States Department of Agriculture, the United States Department of the Interior, and the White House for sponsoring this White House Conference on Conservation. It is a tribute to the efforts of the administration, the departments, and agencies that they acknowledge and appreciate the vital importance of America’s cultural and natural resources. The President’s America’s Great Outdoors Initiative is a significant initiative that can engage many Americans in caring for and appreciating these resources.”
