The Jarchow Conservation Award

The Board of Directors of the Tucson Herpetological Society (THS) established the Jarchow Conservation Award (JCA) in July 1992 to honor individuals or organizations for their service to the conservation of the amphibians and reptiles of the deserts of North America. Candidates are individuals and organizations that have received little recognition and whose conservation work would benefit from the award. The award itself consists of an engraved plaque, a written citation, Honorary Life Membership in the society, and $500. The Jarchow Conservation Award is supported entirely by donations made to the society. Nominations are solicited from the society every two years and are reviewed by a committee that consists of a quorum of the previous awardees plus a Chairperson (Don Swann). Finally, the THS Board of Directors must approve the final selection of any candidate chosen by the committee.

The award is named for James L. Jarchow, D.V.M, of Tucson because of his dedication contributions to the conservation of amphibians and reptiles for more than 20 years, the first Jarchow Conservation Award (JCA) was given to Dr. Jarchow on 15 September 1992.
