The Eighth Annual Austin H. Wilkins Forest Stewardship Award Presentation
Location: The Blaine House, Augusta
Governor Paul LePage, The Maine Department of Conservation and the Maine TREE Foundation will honor a Maine lumber company that has made outstanding contributions to forest management with the sixth annual Austin Wilkins Forest Stewardship Award.
Established in 2004, the Wilkins Award is named after Dr. Austin Wilkins for his lifelong leadership in being a steward of Maine’s forests. The award recipient is chosen periodically by the MDOC commissioner and the Maine TREE Foundation, but not more often than annually.
