AMC Maine Wilderness Lodges Win Media Award

We’re thrilled and honored to announce that our Maine Wilderness Lodges have won the Society of American Travel Writers (SATW) “Phoenix Award,” in recognition of our conservation and preservation efforts in the Maine Woods over the past decade!

In its announcement, SATW said:
The non-profit Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) has a 137-year history of important sustainable nature-based tourism practices, investing more than $52 million in resource conservation and recreation management of 66,500 acres of its own property, part of nearly 345,000 acres protected in northern Maine in collaboration with other partners. This Phoenix Award recognizes AMC's restoration of three 19th-century Maine Wilderness Lodges, connecting them with an 80-mile network of backcountry trails, and preserving roughly 100 square miles of surrounding, previously endangered woodland as part of the organization’s Maine Woods Initiative.
