The Waterman Funds 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 Northeast’s mountains.
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 people who have shown a lasting commitment to preserving both the physical landscape and the spirit of wildness in the mountains of the northeast.
The deadline for nominations each year is December 1. The award is usually presented in the fall at either the Alpine Stewardship Gathering or the Waterman Fund 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.
Each year’s winner will be invited to receive his or her Steward Award at the annual fund dinner.
