Arizona Congressman Raúl Grijalva is the latest recipient of the Wilderness Society’s Ansel Adams award.

Grijalva, who chairs the House Natural Resources Committee, is honored for four decades of public service and his efforts in conservation.

“It affirms that I’m on the right path," Grijalva said. "One of the hardest things to do in Congress is to try to stay consistent — and especially when you talk about environmental issues. They’re always backburner issues. Getting them to the forefront has always been a difficult process.”

Previous Ansel Adams honorees include President Jimmy Carter and the late Congressman John Lewis.

Scott Daniels was an intern at KJZZ in 2022.
