ODNR HONORS CONSERVATIONISTS

 ODNR HONORS CONSERVATIONISTS
 COLUMBUS, Ohio, Oct. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Hard work and concern for the


environment paid off for five individuals and an international corporation this week at the Ohio Department of Natural Resources' 1992 Conservation Awards Oct. 5. The recipients were honored during a ceremony at ODNR headquarters in Columbus.
 The Conservation Awards recognize conservation efforts on two levels: The Conservation Achievement Award and the Conservation Hall of Fame. The Conservation Achievement Award was created in 1971 to recognize an individual or organization that materially demonstrates environmental awareness and concern through continuing programs or a single major effort.
 The Conservation Hall of Fame originated in 1967 as an honor given to individuals who devote a lifetime to furthering conservation efforts in Ohio. Jonathan "Johnny Appleseed" Chapman, former ODNR Director A.W. Marion, former Governor James A. Rhodes and sausage magnate Bob Evans are just a few of the distinguished names in the Hall of Fame.
 1992 inductees into the Conservation Hall of Fame include Edith Chase of Portage County, the former Charles Goslin of Fairfield County and Charlie King, formerly of Franklin and Stark counties, recently retiring to Colorado. 1992 Conservation Achievement Award winners were the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company in Summit County, Benjamin King of Geauga County and Edward Moody from Stark County.
 "These fine individuals have demonstrated a strong stewardship ethic toward our environment," said ODNR Director Frances S. Buchholzer. "We feel that it is important to recognize individuals and organizations who have consciously made an attempt to enhance our natural resources."

EDITH C. CHASE
 No one has made a stronger lifelong commitment to the cause of coastal management and the advancement of Ohio's Lake Erie resource than Edith Cates Chase. Founder of the Ohio Coastal Management Project in 1982, she has served as its president ever since. In this role, and as a valued public advisor to the Ohio EPA, ODNR and the Lake Erie Commission, she has been an effective advocate for comprehensive coastal management legislation and numerous issues concerning Ohio's north coast shoreline. Ms. Chase was a charter member of ODNR's Coastal Resources Advisory Council and has served with distinction in numerous public roles. Now retired, she is a resident of Kent. CHARLES R. GOSLIN
 The late "Charlie" Goslin, Fairfield County's beloved naturalist, nature writer and local historian, was a lifelong student of nature and culture in southeast Ohio. As "Nature Notes" columnist for the "Lancaster Eagle-Gazette", he wrote more than 1,700 articles over a 30- year period, published numerous books and introduced generations of young Ohioans to a new appreciation for their natural surroundings. The Charles R. Goslin Nature Sanctuary at Christmas Rocks State Nature Preserve commemorates his devotion to Ohio's natural resources. Mr. Goslin died in 1990 at the age of 86. CHARLES C. KING
 Dr. Charles C. King has devoted his professional career to helping Ohioans appreciate and preserve their natural heritage. During 11 years as professor of biology at Malone College and 20 years at The Ohio State University, Dr. King introduced countless students to the natural world. As longtime Executive Director of the Ohio Biological Survey and Chairman of the Ohio Natural Areas Council, he was an enthusiastic and effective advocate for natural resource preservation and protection in Ohio. Among his many publications are "Ohio's Natural Heritage" and "A Legacy of Stewardship", a history of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources which he edited in 1990. Dr. King, now retired, is building a new home near Pagosa Springs, Colo.

THE GOODYEAR TIRE & RUBBER COMPANY
 A long-time supporter of soil and water conservation programs in Ohio and across the United States, The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company has made a significant commitment to this cause for the past 45 years.

The Goodyear Soil Conservation Awards program encourages grassroots support of improved soil and water conservation measures nationwide. BENJAMIN A. KING
 Benjamin King has devoted countless volunteer hours and considerable energy to beautification and tree-planting programs in and around the village of Chagrin Falls. His generosity and perseverance over many decades have helped to make Chagrin Falls one of the loveliest -- and greenest -- communities in Ohio. Through his efforts, the village has been designated a Tree City USA for the past six years. Earlier this year, Chagrin Falls dedicated the Benjamin A. King Tree Farm in his honor. Now retired from the practice of law, Mr. King resides in Bainbridge Township, Geauga County. EDWARD MOODY
