Marian Pychowska Award

The Stewardship Society Award honors AMC volunteers who carry on the tradition of public service activity and bring new members to join in the effort. The Stewardship Society structure seeks to recognize and encourage AMC's grassroots public service volunteers to contribute to the protection, enjoyment, and wise use of the public lands. Stewardship Society members typically volunteer on trail work, conservation, or other stewardship projects.

The Marian Pychowska Award recognizes those who have given at least 96 Hours. Marian Pychowska stands out for her diversity. In the 1880's she helped build trails, created a trail map of the Northern Presidentials, discovered the Pinnacle in Huntington's Ravine, and may be the first AMCer to look at the impact of recreation. When a shelter was proposed near treeline she wrote "We all fear if the public are invited to it the surroundings will become..." littered.
