Green Source DFW awards to feature ‘John Muir’




John Muir

The sixth annual Green Source DFW Sustainable Leadership Awards. Will be held by Memnosyne Institute on November 9 at the Dallas Arboretum with a virtual trip back in time. Guest speaker “John Muir” will be portrayed by Lee Stetson, who has performed as the pioneering conservationist in Yosemite National Park since 1983. “Lee has not been to the DFW area in several years, so don’t miss this opportunity to see the star of the Yosemite Theater and the Ken Burns’ National Park series as shown on PBS,” says Wendel Withrow, director of Green Source DFW.

In addition to Stetson’s performance, the event will feature awards in the following categories: Large Business, Small Business, Small Nonprofit, Nonprofit Professional, For-Profit Professional and Volunteer, along with some specialty awards.

North Texans will get the chance to vote on their favorite nominees during September. Finalists will be announced in October and the winners will be selected by a panel of judges from the North Texas green community.
