During the annual meeting of the Dunwoody Homeowners Association, the Dunwoody Nature Center announced Georgia Development Partners and Doosan Infracore as the recipients of the 2012 Dave Adams Award.
Each year, the Dave Adams award winner is selected by the board of directors of the Dunwoody Nature Center to the individual, group or organization that has made the greatest contribution to the Center for the year. Named in honor of the memory of Dave Adams, the award’s purpose is to express recognition for service and gratitude for commitment to the mission of the Nature Center.
In keeping with its mission of conserving and enhancing Dunwoody Park while motivating responsible action, the Nature Center undertook its biggest initiative of 2012 by restoring its long eroded meadow gathering area.
Both recipients of this year’s award were instrumental in helping to secure the grant to restore the meadow, and also in providing equipment, expertise, and volunteers in completing the project.
Sean Hart, president of Georgia Development Partners, committed over two weeks of his company’s services and expertise in storm water management in working with landscape architects to shape and grade the rain gardens. Doosan Infracore donated skid steer (Bobcat) equipment and excavators for the project, as well as over 100 volunteers over a two day span.
