Association president Garn Hatch commended Duwe for his efforts on behalf of historic trails in the West and presented him with a certificate of appreciation.Duwe, who recently accepted an assignment at the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore in Michigan, was cited for professional performance, "diplomatic guidance," fairness, good humor and patience.

In accepting the association's certificate, Duwe urged members to focus their attention on preservation, interpretation, mapping, data base development, planning, signing and marketing. He predicted that interest in historic trails will continue to grow because of groups like the Mormon Trails Association and the commitment of public agencies, particularly the National Park Service.
