South Mountain Partnership Now Accepting Spirit Of South Mountain Award Nominations
The public is encouraged to nominate individuals, projects, or organizations that have made significant contributions to advance a positive and sustainable future for the South Mountain landscape, which consists of portions of Adams, Cumberland, Franklin, and York counties.
Last year, the award went to Karen Lutz, retired Mid-Atlantic Regional Director for the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. Karen joined the staff of ATC in 1988 after volunteering and being a founding member of the Cumberland Valley Appalachian Trail Club.
The Spirit of South Mountain award will be presented at the ninth annual Power of the Partnership Year-End Celebration in early 2020 in Adams County.
Award nominations will be judged based on the degree to which they:
-- Enrich the quality of life and sense of place of the region's citizens and communities
-- Advance the conservation goals within the South Mountain region
-- Conserve the natural, cultural, recreational and agricultural resources that make the South Mountain landscape unique
-- Elevate public awareness of the natural, cultural, recreational, and agricultural resources
-- Encourage collaboration among residents, businesses, public agencies, local governments and non-profit and community organizations
