Peg Bostwick of the DEQ Wins National Wetlands Award

Peg Bostwick, 404 Program Coordinator, for the Department of Environmental 
Quality, has won the 2004 National Wetlands Award for State, Tribal, and 
Local Program Development.  Ms. Bostwick will be honored on May 20, 2004, 
at a ceremony in the Senate Caucus Room in Washington, DC.

Ms. Bostwick was nominated for this award by DEQ Director Steven E. Chester 
for more than 15 years of service in shaping Michigan's wetland policies 
and programs.  She has been a leader in the development and administration 
of Michigan's comprehensive wetland program and has positively influenced 
wetland policy at the local, regional, state, and national levels.  Ms. 
Bostwick's responsibilities include ensuring that Michigan's program is 
compatible with federal policy and law; and integrating research, science, 
and technology into Michigan's wetland regulation and protection.

"I am extremely pleased and very proud that Peg has won this award," said 
Director Chester.  "Peg's passion for our wetlands resources is 
unsurpassed.  She has had * and continues to have * a significant role in 
the development of Michigan's wetlands protection program and in shaping 
wetlands policy.  Her knowledge, creativity, and enthusiasm put her at the 
head of the class, not only in Michigan but nationally as well."

Ms. Bostwick is one of six wetlands educators, scientists, and 
conservationists that have been selected as recipients of the 2004 National 
Wetlands Awards for exemplary contributions in conserving or restoring the 
Nation's wetlands.  The National Awards program honors exceptional 
individuals who have demonstrated extraordinary effort, innovation, and 
excellence in wetland conservation, research, or education through programs 
or projects at a regional, state, or local level.  It is co-sponsored by 
the Environmental Law Institute, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. 
Department of Agriculture Natural Resource Conservation Service, U.S. Fish 
and Wildlife Service, USDA Forest Service, NOAA Fisheries, and the U.S.
