We are accepting nominations for our prestigious MACC Environmental Service Awards for individuals and groups that have made outstanding contributions to protect natural resources in Massachusetts. Conservation commissioners and staff, activ-ists, environmentalists, consultants, politicians, government officials, foundations, teachers, students, and others who have made measurable contributions are likely nominees. Actions with respect to wetlands protection, land and water conservation, habitat restoration, wildlife preservation, science advancement, or other related activities may qualify.
MACC usually presents awards to the following categories of dedicated environmental experts:
  • Conservation Commissioner of the Year
  • Conservation Administrator of the Year
  • Long Time Service Award
  • Educator of the Year
  • Conservationist of the Year
  • Outstanding Public Service Award
  • Outstanding Achievements in Open Space Stewardship

In 2019, we recognized the contributions of a student volunteer with our second Youth Environmental Service Award! Please think about the fabulous characters on your commission, at a state agency, or an educator who has made an outstanding contribution to his/her commission, community, or school.

  • Name, address, email address, and daytime telephone number of the nominee

We present the awards at our Annual Environmental Conference (AEC) each year.

We publish the awardees in the MACC Conservation Quarterly, AEC Program Book, and online. You can read about past awardees at HERE
