Mount Vernon- At the 2006 Green Summit, the Knox County Park District presented the Mary Miller Conservation Partnership award to the Philander Chase Corporation. The Summit was held in the Great Hall at the Mount Vernon Developmental Center and Mark Bennett, chairperson of the Park District made the presentation. John Knepper, Philander Chase board member, and Doug Givens, managing director, accepted the award.
The Miller Award was created by the Knox County Park District and recognizes a person or organization that has made a significant contribution to the conservation of natural resources in Knox County through a donation or project that conserves land for open space or outdoor recreation. The Philander Chase Corporation was chosen for its role in the creation of Wolf Run Regional Park, and in securing Agricultural and Conservation easements along the Kokosing River. There is an individual plaque, a group plaque and an oak tree will be planted in a special grove at Wolf Run Park that will continue to recognize the award winners.
The mission of the Philander Chase Corporation is to preserve and maintain the farmland, open spaces, scenic views, and characteristic landscapes surrounding Kenyon College and Gambier, Ohio.
