2021 Carl N. Becker Stewardship Award RecipientFor three and a half decades, Ken McCarty has directed natural areas stewardship for the state park system within the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. Ken has been instrumental in the restoration, preservation and management of many of the 91 parks and historic sites throughout the state of Missouri.
Some of Ken‘s many achievements worthy of recognition are as follows:
Ken‘s nominator for this award – Christopher Crabtree with the Missouri DNR – captured the essence of Ken McCarty‘s career when he wrote the following: Ken has been one of the main driving forces of ecological management and stewardship within Missouri‘s state park system. He has initiated or played major roles in large-scale restoration efforts across Missouri. From upland prairie restorations to bottomland and wet prairie reconstructions; from savanna and open woodland thinning projects to the reclaiming of glades overrun with cedars; from reshaping altered hydrology of damaged riverine systems to working to restore flood pulses and water retention within 400-year old cypress swamps and bottomland hardwood forests – Ken has done it all.
Join the people who protect and manage our natural areas.
