JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — A Wyoming nonprofit is honoring former U.S. Interior Secretary Sally Jewell with an award for her commitment to the protection of wildlife.

Jewell will receive the Murie Spirit of Conservation Award during Teton Science Schools’ 50th anniversary celebration in August. She will also be the keynote speaker for the event at the Jackson Hole Center for the Arts.

Before her four-year post under President Barack Obama’s administration, Jewell worked as the president and CEO of Recreation Equipment Inc. and as a petroleum engineer.

Teton Science Schools Executive Director Chris Agnew says Jewell’s background helped her understood what it takes to address today’s greatest conservation needs.

The conservation award is given out annually to people who demonstrate a commitment to civility and community.
