A state organization called an Eagle River man “instrumental” for his role in helping protect natural places in northern Wisconsin.

Gathering Waters, Wisconsin’s Alliance for Land Trusts, honored Bryan Pierce with its Harold “Bud” Jordahl Lifetime Achievement Award at a recent ceremony.

Pierce helped form the Northwoods Land Trust in 2001 and served as its executive director for 18 years.

Gathering Waters executive director Mike Carlson praised Pierce’s work for the area.
