Mary Hufty Local Hero Award

Each year at its annual conference, the Organization of Biological Field Stations (OBFS) will recognize an individual who exemplifies the ideals of the organization and supports research, education, and outreach through personal and/or professional actions, particularly in the areas of biology, conservation, and/or ecology. The recipient of the award will be selected each year by the conference planning committee, with Board approval, and with the greatest input coming from the conference host, as the awardee is expected to be a member of the host institution’s local community.
