Senator Angus King Award for Conservation Excellence

Purpose and Description:

To publicly acknowledge those individuals who have worked to conserve lands and waters for the benefit of the community and future generations, in Maine and beyond.  This award is particularly intended to recognize those heroic and unheralded citizens who have labored largely behind the scenes, and who may have been overlooked and unacknowledged for their contributions. It is presented to no more than one recipient each year (unless we are recognizing a collaborative effort by two or more people).




Required Nomination Materials


Selection Process

A selection committee of five members, chosen by the RLHT Executive Director, will review nominations and choose a winner by consensus if possible, or by vote, if necessary
