Brian Paradise, a longtime Sierra Club of Northeast Florida Group Sierra outings leader and activist, is the recipient of the national Sierra Club’s top award for volunteer service, the William E. Colby Serra Club award. From the Sierra Sentry newsletter:
The award reflects the effectiveness of his quiet demeanor, his extensive knowledge of our area and its issues, his unfailing politeness, and his leadership in a wide range of conservation and environmental protection initiatives. They range from successfully opposing an attempt to put a fuel terminal near historic Fort Clinch in Fernandina Beach in 1978 to working on sustainability and political issues in recent years.
