Tiffany Woods of the National Wildlife Federation Honored With Charlie Shaw Conservation Partnership Award

Reston, VA – The National Wildlife Federation has recognized Tiffany Woods for her commitment to working across organizational lines to promote better forest management practices.

“Tiffany Woods' considerable impact is measured in the thousands of acres of longleaf pine forest restored and the dozens of collaborative efforts advanced,” said Collin O’Mara, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation. “Her unmatched commitment to building authentic partnerships across the southeast is a national model for how collaborative conservation should work.”

The Charlie Shaw Conservation Partnership Award honors individuals who have demonstrated a true appreciation for the value and potential of the NWF-affiliate partnership.

“I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to the National Wildlife Federation for the support and organizational structure that provides me with the opportunity to work with such dedicated and mission-driven affiliates in the Southeast,” explained Tiffany Woods, the National Wildlife Federation’s manager of southeast forestry. “The success of the forestry program can only be attributed to the dedication to the on-the-ground efforts of the Alabama, Georgia and Florida wildlife federations. I look forward to continued successes with many affiliates for forestry and wildlife habitat conservation in the years to come.”

The ceremony took place at the National Wildlife Federation’s annual meeting and 82nd anniversary celebration, held in Chantilly, Virginia.

“Tiffany is proactive and intentional in her efforts to develop relationships and establish cooperation at the earliest possible moment,” said Tim Gothard, executive director of the Alabama Wildlife Federation. “Partnership is a foundational trait, rather than an afterthought, with Tiffany and it drives her and affiliate success.”

“Tiffany Woods epitomizes the partnership talked about in the One Federation initiative,” said Mike Worley, executive director of the Georgia Wildlife Federation. “She is helpful, thoughtful, passionate and credible. Tiffany is a partner upon whom we count to make us better and more effective.”
