Carolina Mountain Land Conservancy will present the Lela McBride Award for significant contributions in conservation during its annual meeting at Camp Tekoa in Hendersonville at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 6.

The meeting will celebrate CMLC's conservation successes in the past year, one that set records for the land trust with the protection of more than 4,000 acres of mountain lands in 21 locations in the region. The event is free and open to the public.
CMLC leaders will announce the recipient the prestigious Lela McBride Award, which goes to an individual who has made lasting contributions to land conservation and stewardship in the region. Several community volunteers will also be recognized.
Dr. Michael Follo, director of education at the North Carolina Outward Bound School and a clinical assistant professor at the School of Education at UNC-Chapel Hill, will speak on "The Geology of CMLC Lands in Western North Carolina."
