Holly Heyser wins California Waterfowl's Artemis Award
"California Waterfowl presented Holly Heyser with the 2009 Artemis Award at the Sacramento Wild Game Feed on September 3. This award is given annually to a woman within the waterfowling community for inspiring and supporting positive outdoor experiences for women and helping to preserve our outdoor heritage for future generations. Heyser works tirelessly to involve others in the way of life she loves through her blog, articles for various publications, and the food served in her home." Lots more about it at The Women's Outdoor Wire
If Phillip over at the Hog Blog complains that he got the news second hand, then that must make it fourth hand for me! I can't believe I missed this. Everyone knows how much I respect and admire Holly, and y'all know that I consider her as one of my most important mentors, so you can imagine my shame at not knowing she received this prestigious award sooner!
Congratulations Holly on the well deserved acknowledgement of your hard work, both in the field and behind the desk!
