Local environmentalist wins conservation award

 

Longtime local environmentalist Lennie Roberts will be honored by the John Muir Association Sunday as its 30th annual conservationist of the year.

Roberts works for the Palo Alto-based Committee for Green Foothills and tracks environmental issues in San Mateo County for the group.

Her efforts "led to the development of sound, proactive land use policies, won countless battles to preserve precious coastal resources, led several countywide environmental initiatives, including some that faced fierce opposition, and taught countless citizens how to be effective advocates for their local environment," Corrina Marshall, acting executive director of the Committee for Green Foothills, said.

Roberts will receive the John Muir Conservation award at a dinner Sunday in Martinez.
