Member Receives Environmental Education Award

Thomas Burek, an ACA member for over twenty years, recently received the Jerry S. Dixon Award for Excellence in Environmental Education from the Alaska Conservation Foundation. Burek directs Trailside Discovery Camp in Anchorage, Alaska. Each year, Trailside Discovery helps more than 5,000 campers form lifelong connections to their environment through engaging summer, winter, and spring camps and in- and after-school programming. Burek has directed Trailside Discovery since 1996.

ACA's Knowledge Center has nature and environmental awareness resources your camp can use.
