Recognized for Outstanding Bird Conservation Work on North Carolina Coast

Willmington, NC, April 4, 2002 - Last week, Partners in Flight recognized
Walker Golder, deputy director of Audubon North Carolina, for his bird
conservation work, it was announced today by National Audubon Society.
Partners in Flight is a collective effort of more than 200 agencies and
organizations including National Audubon Society, and is committed to

Golder, in addition to serving as Audubon North Carolina's deputy director,
manages Audubon's North Carolina Coastal Sanctuaries.  It is for his work
with the birds of the North Carolina coast that he was honored with Partners
in Flight's Individual Award for Stewardship.  The award was presented to
Golder at the 2002 International Partners in Flight Meeting, Saturday, March
23rd at Monterrey, California.

"I am proud and personally pleased that Walker Golder has been recognized by
Partners In Flight with a national award for the vital bird conservation and
stewardship work he has undertaken in this state," said Chris Canfield,
executive director of Audubon North Carolina.  "This award is not only a
testament to Walker's work in North Carolina but also to the high regard his
colleagues nationally have for him."

Only 6-10 of individual merit awards in four categories are given by
Partners in Flight nationally each year.  Audubon's Director of Bird
Conservation Jeff Wells said, "This is a great honor, and Walker deserves
it.  He has done outstanding work, yet has never sought recognition for his
accomplishments.  Audubon's Bird Conservation department and the whole
Audubon family give Walker our heartiest congratulations."

National Audubon Society conserves and restores natural ecosystems, focusing
on birds and other wildlife, and their habitats, for the benefit of humanity
and the earth's biological diversity.
