Sue Anschutz-Rodgers has been selected to receive the 2012 George E. Cranmer Award. Colorado Open Lands annually bestows the George E. Cranmer Award to individuals who have made significant achievements in open space conservation in the state.

Anschutz-Rodgers owns and operates Crystal River Ranch in Carbondale. Her upbringing in rural America, as well as her interest in ranching has fostered a strong interest in land conservation. She has also dedicated a good portion of her life to charitable work with nonprofit boards.

Join Colorado Open Lands at the History Colorado Center, 1200 Broadway, Denver, in the Mountain View Event Room on the 4th floor from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 26. Tickets for the Cranmer reception are available for $100 each ($50 nonprofit and government rate) and can be obtained by contacting Colorado Open Lands at 303-988-2373.
