Lifetime Achievement: Green Tie Goes to Chief Parr

Posted on by SCNPS Website Team

September 20 was an emotional day for our own Rick Huffman, as he attended a ceremony honoring the Pee Dee Tribe’s Chief Pete Parr’s decades of conservation advocacy and education.

Conservation is about people and culture as well as the land. The Chief is all that.”)
