Stewart Udall Legacy
Community Conservation Celebration
Stewart Udall 1920-2010: Steward of the Earth
Stewart Udall was a three-term Congressman from Arizona and later served as Secretary of the Interior under Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson. He was a member of the Santa Fe Conservation Trust board of directors at the organization’s inception in 1993, and he served as Chairman of the Board from 1999 to 2000. Stewart was instrumental in the creation of the National Rail Trail movement and inspired SFCT to help create the Santa Fe Rail Trail. During 50 years of public service, he was the quintessential conservationist; conserving habitat, wildlife, energy and land–wherever and whenever he could. When he died in 2010 here in Santa Fe, President Obama said, “…Stewart Udall left an indelible mark on this nation and inspired countless Americans who will continue his fight for clean air, clean water, and to maintain our many natural treasures.” The Stewart Udall Legacy Dinner is given to honor others like him who inspire us to love the land, care for it, preserve its sweep and heal its wounds.
