THURMONT, Md. — Debra Mills, park ranger at Catoctin Mountain Park near Thurmont, received the National Capital Region’s Freeman Tilden Award for Interpretive Excellence.

Mills received the Tilden Award in recognition of the First Bloom program, a year-long project with Robert Moton Elementary School in Westminster, Md. She tailored the project to introduce the natural world and national parks to 80 fourth-graders, many of whom had previously experienced the outdoors only through television and computers.
