WASHINGTON, April 5, 2013

Honoring Senator Susan Collins, Senator Mark Udall, & Retired Appalachian
Trail Superintendent Pamela Underhill

WASHINGTON, April 5, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Appalachian Trail
Conservancy (ATC) will recognize leaders in conservation during their
fourth-annual Awards Gala in Washington, DC on May 15, 2013. This year's
honorees include Senator Susan Collins of Maine, Senator Mark Udall of
Colorado, and Pamela Underhill, retired Superintendent of the Appalachian
Trail (A.T.). Awards will be presented by Jim Cantore, the Weather Channel's
Meteorologist and Storm Tracker. All proceeds will benefit the ATC.

Senator Collins and Senator Udall have been nominated to receive the ATC's
Congressional Leadership Award. Senator Collins is being honored for her long
history of supporting efforts to protect and preserve America's parks,
greenways, and forests, through her support of the Forest Legacy Program and
the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF).

Senator Udall is being honored for spearheading numerous programs and
legislative initiatives designed to protect our precious landscapes across the
U.S. He is a strong supporter of the LWCF, National Park Service (NPS), and
the U.S. Forest Service.

Underhill is being honored with the Vanguard Award for acquiring hundreds of
land tracts to protect the A.T., creating a lasting legacy of land
conservation and a cooperative management system that will steward the lands
acquired for generations to come.

"Over the past few decades the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, along with
countless agencies and partners, have worked hard to protect the Appalachian
Trail. This would not be possible without the dedication and cooperation of
such leaders as Senator Udall, Senator Collins, and Pam Underhill," stated
Mark Wenger, Executive Director/CEO of the ATC.

Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia and Congressman Jim Moran
of Virginia will serve as Honorary Co-Chairs for this event. Terry L. Lierman
and Goodloe E. Byron Jr. will serve as Co-Chairs of the Host Committee.

The A.T. is a unit of the National Park System, ranging from Maine to Georgia,
at approximately 2,185 miles in length. It is the longest hiking-only footpath
in the world.

This event is sponsored by the Bavarian Inn, ENO, Expedia Inc., Patton Boggs
LLP, Summit Global Ventures, Toyota North America Inc., and Walmart.
