American Forests Awards for 1994

AMERICAN FORESTS has for many years recognized individuals who have distinguished themselves for local, national, and international accomplishments in fields of forestry and related natural-resource disciplines. The prestigious awards include the John Aston Warder Medal, the Distinguished Service Award, the William B. Greeley Award, the Bernhard Eduard Fernow Award (given every other year), and the President's Award. In recent years, the Jean Giono (not presented this year) and Geo awards have been added. In addition, AMERICAN FORESTS and the National Urban Forest Council annually present three medals: to a researcher, a practitioner, and a citizen activist.


Presented for distinguished service to forestry and other aspects of resource conservation, this award is available both to members and nonmembers of AMERICAN FORESTS. It is given to people who have distinguished themselves in their professional activities as legislators, foresters, or in other resource professions.


MAX PETERSON IS executive vice president of the International Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies. Prior to that, he served for more than 37 years in a variety of positions in the U.S. Forest Service, the last 7-1/2 years as chief. He began his Forest Service career in 1949 in California and during the next nine years worked on three national forests there. Peterson is a native of Missouri and a graduate of the University of Missouri. In 1958 he was awarded the Rockefeller Foundation Fellowship to the water-resource and land-use-planning program at Harvard University, where he obtained his master's degree in public administration in 1959.


This medal, named for the founder of AMERICAN FORESTS, is presented each year to a member for long-term accomplishments in the conservation of forest resources and the environment, with special consideration for service to AMERICAN FORESTS.


FOR THE BETTER PART of four decades, Robert L. Skiera helped to build and care for Milwaukee, Wisconsin's urban forest. Skiera began by hauling brush and trimming trees for the city's urban forestry department and worked his way up to city forester, a post he held for 17 years. During his tenure, Milwaukee's urban forest became known as one of the country's best, with more than 335,000 street trees and 122 miles of tree-lined parkways. A past vice president of AMERICAN FORESTS and a popular speaker, Skiera has a unique ability to interest people from all walks of life in his passion for trees. Since retirement he has worked as a consultant in this country and in Europe, helping city leaders build or rebuild the social, political, and physical elements of their urban forest. Skiera has served on numerous state and national boards.


The award is given annually to a person who has made major contributions to forest conservation in the area or region in which he or she lives and works.
