WASHINGTON — The 2017 Chief’s Honor Awards are an opportunity to recognize the amazing work we’re doing throughout the agency. The award ceremony will be held Dec. 7 at 10 a.m. in the Jefferson Auditorium in Washington, D.C. It will also be available as a live stream so that all our employees are able to participate.
The awardees accomplished innovative and far-reaching project outcomes in support of our “USDA Forest Service Strategic Plan, FY2015–2020.” Projects range from partnerships with Job Corps, to cultural awareness, to fire and water restoration projects. These accomplishments demonstrate significant achievements in performing work according to our national priorities. These teams have responded to the needs and challenges faced by our forests and grasslands and the demands from our citizens.
Please join us as we congratulate these recipients next Thursday.
