Empire High School teacher Christine In-Albon was recognized by the U.S. Department of Interior in Washington, D.C. today, with the 2013 Partners in Conservation Award for her collaboration on the Cienega Watershed Partnership program.

This program allows students to become stewards for public lands through habitat restoration and conservation.

The Partners in Conservation Awards recognize outstanding examples of conservation legacies achieved when the Department of the Interior engages groups and individuals representing a wide range of backgrounds, ages, and interests to work collaboratively to renew lands and resources.

This  program was one of 20 public-private partnerships recognized that have achieved exemplary conservation results through cooperation and community engagement.

“This is a great recognition and example of the incredible work that our students and teachers are doing in the classroom and in the field,” said Superintendent Calvin Baker.
