Mark is nominated for his leadership as Co-Chair of the Cienega Corridor Construction Project under the Arizona Trail Association.
Specifically, Mark is nominated for his success in mobilizing volunteers of the Tucson community to participate in building a 25-mile section of the Arizona Trail called the Cienega Corridor.
After two winter seasons the project is already a huge success. The number of volunteers has been capped at 50 per event. The Arizona Trail Association, its volunteers and sponsors, and all the citizens of Arizona are greatly indebted to Mark Flint and his outstanding leadership for moving the Arizona Trail almost 25 miles closer to completion.
