Jones Conservation Award will honor Alan Hershey for 30 years of service as a dedicated champion, trail builder and former Chair of the Board of Trustees. Special preservation awards will be given to Brendan Burns, David Stempien and Bob Vaucher for preserving land rich in Revolutionary history, along the Washington-Rochambeau National Historic Trail in Bridgewater. Beverly Mills and Elaine and John Buck will receive awards for raising current awareness, through their book and presentations, of significant stories of diverse communities from earliest days in the Sourland Mountains.
