Scott Brewer, executive director of the coordinating council, said Dicks' leadership in Congress has helped secure funding for threatened fish, wildlife and related habitats in Hood Canal and throughout Puget Sound, but his passion for Hood Canal in particular stands out.
In past years, several people have received the annual award. Dicks, D-Belfair, is the only recipient for 2012.
Dicks, who is retiring from Congress this year, will be honored during the annual conference of the Hood Canal Coordinating Council from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Friday at Harmony Hill Retreat Center in Union.
For reservations, phone 360-394-0046 or email firstname.lastname@example.org by 4 p.m. today.
