The 2023 Illinois Conservation Foundation Outdoor Hall of Fame nomination of first-grade teacher Eileen Rice was a chance for Chauncey Niziol to recognize – and thank – a schoolteacher who he feels embodies Mother Nature in the classroom. “As a member of the Illinois Conservation Foundation’s Outdoor Hall of Fame, I have always felt this award is not something for the people who are doing something for themselves, but those who are undertaking projects that will affect the outdoor lives of our children for generations to come,” said Niziol.
