Donald B. Jones Conservation Award

D&R Greenway Land Trust

What is the Donald B. Jones Conservation Award?

The Donald B. Jones Conservation Award is presented annually to a person who embodies D&R Greenway’s mission to inspire a conservation ethic.

Donald B. Jones (1911-1994) was a determined preservationist who committed his time and resources to saving the land and historic landmarks that give our region its sense of place. Awardees display a similar selfless generosity, making a significant impact on our landscape and supporting our mission – to preserve and care for land and inspire a conservation ethic, now and forever.

D&R Greenway Land Trust is grateful to Donald, his wife Beverley, and the Jones family for their lifelong commitment to preservation that has made a difference in our region.
