Tony loved paddling and hiking, and enjoyed spending time on his farm along Virginia’s Jordan River. At the end of a life filled with accomplishment, service and hard work, Tony passed away peacefully, with his hip waders on, while fishing with his son in North Carolina.
We are forever grateful to Tony for everything he gave to American Rivers and the conservation movement. And now we are happy to announce a new fellowship in his memory.
1. Sustainably managing our freshwater resources
2. Restoring rivers (through approaches such as dam removal) and achieving natural flood protection by restoring the natural functions of rivers, wetlands and floodplains
3. Conserving America’s heritage by protecting our remaining free-flowing rivers and connecting communities to their rivers
4. Achieving resiliency in natural and human communities in the face of global warming.
