On February 17, 2007, the previous year’s award winner, Dr. Darren A. Miller, (Southern Wildlife Project Manager for Weyerhaeuser Company) presented the 2007 Service Award to Dr. Tim Carter (Ball State University). This was the second such award to be given to a member or supporter of the SBDN. The award was created to recognize outstanding service and contributions to the organization. Tim has been an active SBDN member since its inception and has facilitated the group’s efforts in many ways, including serving on the Board of Directors, as Treasurer, and a member of multiple committees. The award was a beautiful framed color photograph of an Indiana bat, (Myotis sodalis) with a dated plate on the frame describing the service award.
