Bill Haire gets Lifetime Achievement Award

Local Land Trust Trails Coordinator Bill Haire was recognized for his lifetime of hard work obtaining easements and building trails so Nevada County residents can get off the pavement and go for a walk.

Haire was awarded the Lifetime Professional Achievement Award at the 22nd California Trails and Greenways Conference in May.

He has served as trails coordinator with the Nevada County Land Trust since 2003. Before that he served as the District Resource Officer for what is now the Yuba River Ranger District of the Tahoe National Forest from 1977 until his retirement in 2003.

During his time with the forest service Haire managed over 500 miles of trails. Since his time with the land trust, Haire has helped establish ten miles of public trails, in neighborhoods, in the Empire Mine area and is currently working on a section along Wolf Creek.
