In August 2011, Marc Barnes was awarded the Two Chiefs’ Partnership Award for his contribution to the success of the Collaborative Coastal Whole Watershed Restoration in 2010.
The Two Chiefs’ Partnership award is a national award that is presented annually by the Chiefs of the USDA Forest Service and USDA Natural Resources Conservation Services to recognize exemplary partnership efforts promoting conservation and forest stewardship.
According to Kent Connaughton, the PNW Regional Forester, this award is only presented to a handful of partnerships each year. Marc was awarded this honor for his participation with the Siuslaw Stewardship Groups and their stewardship projects.
