The Pinecones must go on

In case you thought the nearly 23-year-old Golden Pinecone awards would be ending just because Nevada EcoNet is, think again. GreenUP will be taking over the awards after EcoNet dissolves in December. For now, the two local nonprofits are seeking nominations for the annual environmental awards. So if you know any outstanding organizations or individuals who’ve gone above and beyond to help improve and sustain the environment, find a nomination form and details about where to send it at Previous winners aren’t eligible, and nominations must be received by 5 p.m. on Sept. 12. Awards will be presented in the fall.
