Certificate of Appreciation

THE PUBLIC LANDS FOUNDATION proudly recognizes Glendon E. Collins on his retirement from the Board of Directors and presents him with a Certificate of Appreciation in recognition of his dedication and outstanding service to the Public Lands Foundation during the years 1987 to 2020.

Glen is a Charter Member of the PLF and became a member of the Foundation’s Board of Directors and the first Regional Representative for Arizona in 1990; a position he retained until 2010.  From 2009 through 2016 he was PLF’s Secretary, in charge of developing the PLF’s quarterly newsletter, the Public Lands Monitor.  He also has been Chairman of the PLF’s Communications Committee, a member of the Historical Committee, and the PLF Archives Manager.  In these capacities he has contributed many volunteer hours in the interest of public land management and assisting current and former BLM employees.  A special recognition is in order for his role in the establishment and management of the PLF Archives and helping to educate new BLM employees about the BLM’s history and the PLF during BLM’s semi-annual Pathways training courses.

Glen has written numerous articles and publications over the years, including many for the Public Lands Foundation.  Glen developed and maintained a Register of BLM Retirees, which he updated every two years and made available to all PLF members.  He also developed and updated every five years a Historical Record of the Offices, Managers and Organizations of the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, Grazing Service, General Land Office and O&C Revested Lands Administration, dating back to 1934.

The numerous generous contributions made by Glendon E. Collins over the years as a PLF member are greatly appreciated.  We thank him for his service and his dedication to supporting the Public Lands Foundation and America’s public lands administered by the Bureau of Land Management.

As a lasting token of recognition of Glen’s countless contributions to the Foundation, we hereby rename the PLF Archives as the “PLF Glendon E. Collins National Archives.”
