Byron Sher Award

Outstanding Achievement in Environmental Protection

Every year, Sierra Club California presents two California Public Officials with the Byron Sher Award for outstanding achievement in environmental protection.
In 2013 we recognized Senator Toni Atkins for her efforts to ensure that the California Coastal Commisssion has the tools it needs to protect coastal access and Senator Noreen Evans for defending the environmental review process, particularly the public's right to know, for supporting state parks, and for championing an oil severance fee to compensate Californians for resources extracted.
