The award is given to a person or organization that has made a significant contribution to improving and protecting the environmental health of Casco Bay.

Award Citation:

"For more than a decade, Gary Fish of Wayne, Maine, has worked to make Casco Bay a healthier place for marine life and the people who live around it by teaching homeowners, gardeners, and landscapers how to 'grow green lawns that keep Casco Bay blue.' Fish, who is the manager of pesticide certification and reduction programs for the Maine Board of Pesticides Control, helped launch the BayScaping program to reduce dependence on fertilizers and pesticides."
