Congrats to Ron Pennington for being honored as an outstanding community volunteer!
Nominating Organization: Irvine Ranch Conservancy
Honoree Category: Animals & Environment
Why Nominated: Ron has been a dedicated Irvine Ranch Conservancy volunteer since 2010, donating nearly 500 hours toward leading and supporting everything from interpretive hikes, volunteer training, Fire Watch, and community stewardship events. His kind demeanor and knowledge of the land makes him approachable to the public and a vital asset to our team! Ron keeps an eye on our list of events needing support, and jumps in to help out wherever he can. Most recently, he supported several community stewardship events, including the Baker Staging Area tree planting and weekly restoration events along the Dripping Springs Trail. These events provide an opportunity for the local community to connect to the land while giving back through stewardship. With Ron there, we know that the participants are in good hands and the weeds don’t stand a chance! We would not be able to accomplish the work needed on the land without the gift of Ron!
