Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Robert C. "Bobby" Scott received the Friend of the National Parks Award from the National Parks Conservation Association. The National Parks Conservation Association presented this award to Members of Congress whose votes on park issues in the 111th Congress (2009-2010) upheld the standards and integrity of the National Park System or protected the parks from harm. The award is a 19" x 27" framed reproduction of an art-deco color poster of Acadia National Park, in the style of those produced in the 1930s for the National Park Service by the Federal Art Project of the Works Progress Administration.

"I am honored to receive this award from the National Parks Conservation Association," said Rep. Scott. "From public lands to important historical sites, I am committed to protecting and preserving our nation's natural and historical treasures for the next generation of Americans. I look forward to working with the National Parks Conservation Association on important issues in 112th Congress, including the designation of historic Fort Monroe as a National Park."
