For the second year in a row, Pantex has been nominated by the Department of Energy and NNSA for an award in recognition of its efforts to research and protect migratory birds.
Pantex will represent the DOE/NNSA in the competition for the 2013 Presidential Migratory Bird Federal Stewardship Award, which has been administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service since 2011. Each federal agency is eligible to nominate one project or action conducted by or in partnership with a federal agency.
