John and Margaret Maxwell
Future of Conservation Award

John and Margaret Maxwell were honored by Friends at the annual banquet with the announcement of a scholastic award in their name. The John and Margaret Maxwell Future of Conservation Award will be presented to a student (or students) of Sequim High School that completes the award requirements and exhibits dedication to environmental conservation.

During his time with Friends, John researched and wrote a history of the Refuge. For the centennial year celebration, a series of his articles was published in the Peninsula Daily News, educating both public and volunteers on the rich history of the Refuge and Dungeness Spit.

As chair of the Refuge Protection committee, Margaret kept us informed on issues that could impact the Refuge. She wrote letters to our government representatives to gain support for our Refuge and the refuge system nationally.

John and Margaret have volunteered since 2010 and each served as president on the Friends board of directors. Friends would not be the same without their dedication and leadership over the past several years.
