Winner of the Phyllis Yuhas Wildlife Habitat Preservation Award: for development or preservation of habitat that contains significant wildlife and/or native plant life populations
The Phyllis Yuhas Wildlife Habitat Preservation Award was presented to Micayla Jones, Stewardship Director for Red-tail Land Conservancy.
As Stewardship Director, Micayla manages Red-tail’s restoration and construction projects, coordinates volunteers, and directs ongoing invasive plant eradication projects. In all of these activities, writes her nominator, she demonstrates a “steady, level‐headed, and insightful approach.”
Micayla, who grew up in East Central Indiana, is especially passionate about wildlife conservation and about maintaining diverse habitats that allow wildlife to thrive in ECI.
This same passion has led her to volunteer with projects in Ball State’s Biology Department, including its research collection. Micayla also serves as newsletter editor for our Audubon chapter.
