The Prince William Conservation Alliance recently honored Harry Glasgow, member of the Virginia Native Plant Society, for his service, contributions, and advocacy for conservation. The Alliance works to explore, enjoy and protect our natural areas, and increase community involvement in stewardship opportunities.

Harry received the 2019 Wildlife Hero Award in October. He is a member of the VNPS Prince William Wildflower Society chapter, long-time board member of Friends of Huntley Meadows Park; founder of the Fairfax County Park Authority Federation of Friends Groups; Fairfax County Park Foundation Board Officer; U.S. Army Veteran; and Fairfax Master Naturalist.

This award honors Harry’s lifelong work and leadership protecting wild spaces in Northern Virginia through tours, talks and service on local boards and commissions.

Fairfax County parks have benefited significantly thanks to this veteran’s dedication and passion for the natural world. He serves as an example to many through his work as a valued volunteer.
