The Guy Waterman Alpine Steward Award

New England alpine region

The Waterman Fund annually presents the Guy Waterman Alpine Steward Award to a person or organization who has demonstrated a long-term commitment to protecting the physical and spiritual qualities of the mountains in the Northeast.

Seeking to remind us of the values that Guy and Laura Waterman wrote about in their books and practiced in their lives, the award honors and thanks individuals who have shown a lasting commitment to preserving both the physical landscape of the Northeast and the spirit of wildness.

The award is typically presented in the fall at either the Alpine Stewardship Gathering or the Waterman Fund annual dinner.

Anyone who has been an active steward of the mountains of the Northeast can be nominated for the award. The nominee can be a volunteer, a government employee, or the employee of a for-profit or nonprofit organization. An organization or group may also be nominated.

A letter to the Fund is all that is required to nominate someone. Nominations are due by August 1.
