A State park honoring the fallen Granite Mountain Hot Shots has received a national award.  The Society of Outdoor Recreation Professionals has presented Arizona State Parks and Trails with a Project Excellence Award for their work in developing Hot Shots Memorial State Park.  Governor Doug Ducey has stated thanks to the contributions of many, Arizona has a memorial state park dedicated to the lives of the brave Hot Shots.  Arizona State Parks and Trails had dedicated the park in the Town of Yarnell last November.  The 320 acre park is located on the site where the 19 Hot Shots lost their lives on June 30th, 2013 fighting the Yarnell Hill Fire.  It’s the only memorial for first responders of its kind in the country.  The Project Excellence Award was presented at the National Outdoor Recreation Conference held in Scottsdale last Thursday.
