Great Rivers Mourns the Loss of Leo Drey

The state of Missouri lost a conservation visionary, Leo Drey, on Tuesday May 26. He was instrumental in fostering forest management in Missouri, establishing the preservation of the Ozark Scenic Riverways and in preserving Missouri's environment. Mr. Drey helped form the Open Space Council  and the Missouri Coalition for the Environment and was a close friend of Great Rivers' founder, Lewis C. Green. Together with Roger Pryor, Leo and Lewis fought many battles to save Missouri's environment for future generations.
