Spencer Ellis Award

The Maryland Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects established the Spencer Ellis Award to honor the service of Spencer P. Ellis to the environment. His career in landscape architecture included work at the Dept. of Natural Resources, Md. State Forests and Parks, the Federal Land and Water Conservation Fund, and, important to today's occasion, Program Open Space.  The award is given annually to a program or organization that has made a significant contribution to the preservation ​and conservation of the local environment in Maryland.
