Idaho Bureau of Land Management Challis Field Office equipment operator Warren J. Trogden Sr. has been honored with the BLM’s Making a Difference National Volunteer Award.
Trogden was recognized for his dedication to the BLM volunteer campground host program during his 16 years with the BLM. The award is presented annually to four individuals, one couple, one group and one BLM employee in recognition of the most exceptional BLM volunteers.
Trogden has helped volunteers log more than 76,000 hours at four high-use recreation sites. His efforts have made Challis-area BLM campgrounds highly sought-after destinations for prospective volunteer hosts from around the U.S.
A panel of BLM specialists and partner representatives selected the award winners from a record number of nominees submitted by BLM state offices. Other winners hailed from Alaska, New Mexico, Utah, California, Montana and Nevada.
