The Larry Kallemeyn Award is presented to an individual who has demonstrated in the Rainy-Lake of the Woods watershed:
- outstanding professional achievement in scientific research or resource management
- significant contributions to collaborative and cooperative approaches to research or resource management
The Award was named after its first recipient, Larry Kallemeyn, USGS (retired). Throughout his career, Larry was a consummate professional and probably the nicest guy to work with that most of us will ever encounter. His collaborative and cooperative approach to his work led to the cross-border collaborative efforts that the watershed benefits from today. In short, Larry's name on this award epitomizes a professional who practices good science or management that benefits the Rainy-Lake of the Woods watershed.
The Award is presented by the Foundation at the International Rainy-Lake of the Woods Watershed Forum (March 13-14, 2019) when there’s a deserving recipient as determined by the selection committee. The selection committee consists of researchers and resource managers from both Canada and the United States and a representative of the Foundation's board.
