The California Association of Resource Conservation Districts has honored state Sen. Lois Wolk, D-Davis, with its 2013 Legislator of the Year award.

Karen Buhr, executive director of the association, said Wolk earned the recognition through “her tireless efforts to preserve open space and agriculture, her dedication to conservation and her leadership on crafting a water bond that meets the needs of the state of California while being viable at the ballot box.”

“We appreciate Senator Wolk’s commitment, her leadership and her dedication to making California a better state for people, fish and wildlife,” Buhr added. “When the association was deciding on this award, there was no one more committed to these efforts than Senator Wolk. We couldn’t think of a better recipient.”

Wolk, who spoke to the group at its 68th annual meeting last week, has worked on numerous conservation-related measures while serving in the Legislature.

In 2012, she authored Senate Bill 1249, legislation enabling the Department of Fish & Wildlife to partner with resource conservation districts and wildlife conservation nonprofits to manage and operate department-managed lands. At a time with budget constraints were limiting the department, the partnerships enabled by that bill have reduced the department’s costs while helping California maintain and ultimately improve the more than 1 million acres of fish and wildlife habitat it manages throughout the state.

“RCDs are excellent stewards of the land,” Wolk said. “They work to meet the needs of their communities, largely through local support. I thank them for this honor and look forward to continuing to work with them to protect our state’s open spaces and other vital resources.”
