From the Conservation Board:
Primitive Pursuits is being honored for teaching Ithacans how to live gently and respectfully in nature. We especially value their dedication to helping newer generations practice ways to live outdoors in sustainable relations to the earth and our neighbors. We believe their pursuit of a Haudenosaunee mindful stewardship of natural areas can make Ithaca’s environment healthier, honoring the original inhabitants and caretakers of this place.
