Honoree 2014 – Kevin Grant

Congrats to Kevin Grant for being honored as an outstanding community volunteer!

Grant_KevinName:  Kevin Grant

Nominating Organization:  Irvine Ranch Conservancy       

Honoree Category:  Animals & Environment

Why Nominated:  Kevin Grant is a dedicated volunteer who eagerly gives back to the land. Kevin is a Mountain Bike Docent, Trail Boss, and Fire Watch Volunteer. You will often find Kevin supporting a mountain bike activities, but he known to lead the “FREEKS Ride”; a 25 mile test of skill and endurance that is still no match for Kevin’s passion for riding and volunteering. He adamantly helps to protect the Landmarks by taking several shifts during Fire Watch deployment. He also helps maintain the trails he uses for mountain biking by being a Trail Boss. The Field Operations staff loves Kevin Grant’s devotion to dirt. He has a very rare combination of a) the understanding the intricacies of trail work (drainage, transitions, turns & flow) and b) the burliness to actually get it done. He has been very supportive of this year’s trail reroute projects and has even offered to follow up on fine tuning the reroutes once they’ve gotten some use and weather. We wish we had an army of McLeod-wielding, activity-leading, Fire-Watch zealots, Kevin’s in our volunteer corps.

Please write a note of congratulations below!
