Lewis Young, a Lifetime of Conservation Work

Lewis Young

by Kay Mitchell

At the FAS General meeting on March 8, we honored and presented a Lifetime Conservation Achievement Recognition to Lewis Young. Conservationists from all over the state of Montana who have worked with Lewis on projects sent photos and testimonials about Lewis’s hard work, knowledge and dedication to the importance of science in conservation. Lewis has worked on projects from bats to Black Swifts to Sharp-tailed Grouse.

Of course, we at Flathead Audubon also know and trust Lewis’s abilities with the written word, to provide written comments representing our FAS positions on important issues. Lewis also has brought The Pileated Post to life for us for 7 years, as co-editor/decision maker/digital assembler/occasional writer.
