The late Gordon Eastman of "Eastman's Outdoor World" created the "Grass Roots Award" to be presented at WSF’s annual Sheep Show® Convention. His intention was to honor the hard-working members of our Chapters and Affiliates that get almost no recognition for their unending work toward the existence of North American wild sheep. Please send only one nomination per Chapter.

Mike Borel of the California WSF Chapter was the recipient of the 2024 Award. His plaque reads:

THE GORDON EASTMAN Grass Roots Award 
Presented to MIKE BOREL 
The Wild Sheep Foundation and California Wild Sheep Foundation recognize and salute your exceptional, tireless, and selfless efforts serving our organizations, and your work towards the conservation, restoration, and enhancement of desert bighorn sheep in California, and wild sheep throughout North America and the world. 

 

The following criteria are necessary to qualify your candidate for this award:
  1. Individual’s name, address, phone number and a picture.
  2. Name of organization submitting nomination.
  3. Keep in mind that the "Grass Roots Award" is just that, a person who is not recognized by fame or fortune, but by sincere hard work dedicated to his/her Chapter or Affiliate.
  4. All requested information can be emailed to Julie Tripp, WSF Awards & Publications Director.
  5. Must be submitted by November 1st.
  6. All resumes will be reviewed by the WSF Board of Directors.
