The Frances Plate Bequest Fund at the National Park Service

This fund recognizes the devoted service of Mrs. William B. Plate who dedicated herself in the years 1930-1967, to the WNF&GA with donations each year, to the Student Conservation Association, whose motto is “changing lives through service to nature”. The SCA enrolled two thousand volunteers for service at over 400 parks in every one of our nation’s fifty states.
