The Rowell Legacy Committee welcomes its “old” new partner, NatureBridge, as a sponsor of the Rowell Award for the Art of Adventure.
Early in the award’s history, NatureBridge, then Yosemite National Institutes, worked closely with the Rowell Legacy Committee to administer the Galen and Barbara Rowell Lecture Series and the Rowell Award for the Art of Adventure. We are delighted to once again be partnering with NatureBridge, whose work inspires in others a love of the natural world and the desire to protect the wild and special places that Galen and Barbara held so dear.
