Nominate Your Chesapeake Bay Forest Champions By Aug. 12

The Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay with support from the U.S. Forest Service is soliciting nominations for their annual Chesapeake Forest Champions Contest.  Nominations are due August 12.

Forests provide clean water and air, wildlife habitat, recreational opportunities, and a host of other benefits to people.

The purpose of this contest is to recognize the outstanding efforts of groups and individuals from around the bay watershed to conserve, restore, and celebrate Chesapeake forests.

The contest is open to all including landowners, community groups, nonprofits, forestry and natural resource professionals, schools, youth organizations, businesses, public agencies and others working in rural, suburban and urban areas.

Basically, if you know any group or individual who is doing outstanding work for forests, as a volunteer or professional, nominate them.

Nominations submitted for the last two contests will automatically be considered for 2015. Winners will be recognized at the annual Chesapeake Watershed Forum on September 25, in Shepherdstown, WV. Registration, food and lodging expenses at the Forum will be covered for contest awardees.

Nominations must be completed using the form and submitted by email to: Forestsforthebay@gmail.com.
