Ida Swenson receives environmental honor

Press release

Blue Ridge Outdoors, one of the premier environmental publications in the eastern U.S., recently recognized Ida Swenson of Lake Monticello, a 15-year Virginia Master Naturalist, as one of three individuals voted by over 62,000 readers as “Best in the Blue Ridge” in the “Environmentalist’ category. Among the many reasons for this honor is the over 5,000 hours she has volunteered for activities such as stream invertebrate research, invasive plant removal, water quality assessment and, most importantly, environmental education for all age groups from early grade school to retirees. She is partly responsible for the expansion of the Rivanna Master Naturalist organization to almost 200 members.

Swenson has spent over 50 years as a professional science educator and has helped develop the direction and educational curriculum of many charitable organizations, including Trinity Presbyterian Church, the 4H, the Thomas Jefferson Soil and Water Conversation District, and, of course, the Rivanna Master Naturalists.
