Maine Woods Initiative Receives Governor’s Conference on Tourism Award

The 2015 Maine Governor’s Conference on Tourism Award for “Leadership & Growth” was presented today to AMC’s Maine Woods Initiative, at the annual conference held in Augusta. The award recognizes a company, organization, or person that not only strives to grow its own business, but also works with others within the industry to grow tourism in Maine.

In its 139-year history, AMC has made its most significant conservation and recreation investment in the 100-Mile Wilderness region near Greenville. Through its Maine Woods Initiative, AMC is protecting and improving public access for outdoor recreation, helping to preserve the Maine sporting camp tradition, attracting new nature-based tourism to the region, and partnering with local organizations to help address the region’s ecological and economic needs.
