Call for Nominations for Espy Land Heritage Award

Maine Coast Heritage Trust presents the Espy Land Heritage Award to an individual, organization, agency or coalition for exemplary conservation efforts in Maine.

The award recognizes those that have made outstanding contributions to land conservation in Maine while inspiring others. Maine is particularly rich with many people and groups worthy of this honor who, like the award’s namesake Jay Espy, have demonstrated outstanding conservation vision and leadership, and spread a spirit of collaboration.
