2020 Kayah Gaydish Stewardship Awards Announced

Kayah Gaydish was an incredibly selfless steward of various wild lands in the Carolinas. She spent much of her professional career and also her free time maintaining trails, working to clear invasive species, and making key partnerships with land owners so that volunteers could conduct this important work. In her memory, we have awarded 3-4 people per year since 2017 a "Kayah Gaydish Stewardship Award". 

This year's recipients are:
