Staff members of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Wetlands Research Center have recently received recognition for their services.

USGS contractor Gabrielle Boudreaux Bodin, IAP World Services, Inc., received an outstanding-stewardship award from the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana, and the research center's publishing staff received regional and international awards of distinction from the Society for Technical Communication for a map and poster they produced.

Bodin's award was for her work as outreach coordinator for the Coastal Wetlands Planning, Protection and Restoration Act's task force. (Visit The Coastal Wetlands Planning, Protection and Restoration Act for more information about the act.) Bodin was responsible for strategic planning, implementing the outreach program, and serving as a liaison for several Federal and State agencies, as well as nongovernmental organizations.

Bodin has attended numerous conferences and workshops throughout the Nation to raise awareness about Louisiana coastal-land loss. Additionally, a brochure produced by Bodin's outreach team, "Turning the Tide, the Fight to Keep Coastal Louisiana on the Map", has received an award from the National Association of Government Communicators.

Publishing staff members Natalie Trahan, IAP World Services, Inc., and Susan Lauritzen, USGS visual-information specialist, accepted an award from the Houston Chapter of the Society for Technical Communication for the "Circumpolar Arctic Vegetation" map and poster. Trahan and Lauritzen accepted the award on behalf of the USGS as well as its partners in the project, the University of Alaska Institute of Arctic Biology and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

The Houston award automatically qualified the map and poster for the society's international competition where it also was deemed distinguished. These are the fourth and fifth awards that this map and poster have received. The map, featuring informational text and photographs, was named distinguished in the Technical Publications-Informational Materials category.
