The Jack Crowther Award

The Jack Crowther Award

Jack Crowther served on the Gallatin River Task Force for eight years, from 2007-2015. In his time on a board, he was a dedicated field volunteer that would rather spend his time knee deep in the Gallatin than hunched over a computer, and he inspired the volunteer spirit in many a Big Sky resident.

Jack believed in community service and collaboration, serving as board chair of the Water and Sewer District as well.

Now, we honor his legacy by giving our volunteer of the year the Jack Crowther Award. Will you be this year’s winner?
