PHOENIX

 

Since tourism leaves a permanent footprint that impacts the environment of destinations, SATW established the Phoenix award in 1969 to recognize conservation and preservation efforts of individuals and organizations.

 

SATW members can nominate individuals, communities, or organizations that have contributed to a quality travel experience through conservation, preservation, beautification or environmental efforts. Nominations are reviewed by the SATW Phoenix Committee and submitted with recommendations to the Board of Directors for final approval.
