On December 6, 2017, Sandra Neily will receive a Restoration Leadership Award from RESTORE: The North Woods, which was founded by conservations in 1992 to restore the health of north woods ecosytems.

In announcing Sandra’s award, RESTORE cited a lifetime of caring about Maine’s woods, waters, and wildlife, including Sandra’s work  protecting the Penobscot West Branch from the Big A Dam, educating about the economic value of protecting rather than exploiting nature, defending the Moosehead region from Plum Creek's massive development scheme, exposing the decimation of deer yards, safeguarding Maine's wildlands from misplaced industrial wind power, reaching new audiences about restoring endangered species with her recent novel, and breaking glass ceilings (as one of the first women rafting guides licensed by Maine).

RESTORE’s “Members and Friends Gathering” welcomes guests as it celebrates 26 years of caring and activism. Baxter State Park’s retiring director, Jensen Bissell, will highlight the evening with a presentation on the park’s past and future.

Join us Wednesday, December 6, starting at 6 PM, at the Curtis Library, 23 Pleasant St, Brunswick, Maine. The gathering is always informal and fun with food, prizes, and conversation.
