The Bee's Tom Knudson has been honored many times for his journalism. Previous notable work for The Bee includes "The Pineros," about Latino forest workers toiling in unsafe working conditions, often on federal land, and "State of Denial," about the ways California's strict environmental policies conflict with its use of resources from environmentally fragile parts of the planet. Knudson's series "Sierra in Peril" received the 1992 Pulitzer Prize for public service and sparked an era of land management reform in the mountain range.
