Senate President Pro Tem Toni Atkins (D-San Diego) was awarded the Sierra Club’s environmental leadership award for her work protecting the coastline and open space.

Atkins was honored with the “Fantastic Environmental Action Taken (FEAT) Award” during the Sierra Club San Diego Chapter’s 2018 Gala Celebration & Awards Dinner held Saturday night at the Hilton Harbor Island Hotel.

“The Sierra Club is not alone in fighting for the betterment of our environment,” according to the Sierra Club. “We stand together with other outstanding organizations and individuals that educate, advocate and make significant contributions to insuring San Diego’s treasured environment is enhanced and protected.”

Adventure 16, a San Diego-based outdoor specialty mountain-gear retailer, and Sunbelt Publications, a San Diego-based bookseller, were also FEAT Award recipients during Saturday’s gala.
