We were honored that Betty Ball was able to travel all the way out from Colorado to accept EPIC’s 2015 Sempervirens Award for her grass roots activism efforts that helped secure protections for the famed Headwaters forest during the redwood summer era. It was a pleasure to hear her speak about the historical events that helped to shape our region and its environmental movement. Betty Ball gave an incredible acceptance speech that we are delighted to share with you.
Volunteer of the Year
It was with great pleasure to recognize Gisèle Albertine for her ongoing dedication to environmental protection through he volunteer work with EPIC throughout the past year. Gisèle graciously tackles just about every task we ask of her with a positive outlook and always keeps us laughing. Gisèle is an amazing woman and we are so lucky to have her as part of the EPIC family!
We are grateful to chef Leni Heil and her crew at Outlaw Kitchen for preparing the gourmet family style meal that we were able to share while we dined and laughed with our colleagues, friends and the EPC family.
We appreciate the contributions from the sponsors below that helped to make our event one of the most successful ever!
