The Parker/Gentry Award was created in 1996 in memory of Theodore A. Parker III and Alwyn Gentry, ardent conservationists and leading naturalist who died while surveying hill forests of western Ecuador. The annual award is presented to an outstanding individual, team, or organization in conservation biology. The recipient of the Award presents the keynote address at the Conservation Celebration at The Field Museum, an annual event to recognize the efforts of the Keller Science Action Center and The Field Museum's exceptional partners in conservation.
The 2017 Conservation Celebration will take place on Monday, April 24, 2017 and will feature Parker/Gentry Award recipient Dr. David Vaughan. Please email email@example.com with questions.
