The Dillon Award is given annually by the Maryland Environmental Trust to a landowner for outstanding conservation. This award is in honor of the spirit and legacy of the Dillon sisters of Garrett County.
Alverta and Louise Dillon, sisters and retired school teachers, donated a conservation easement and then bequeathed their entire Garrett County property to The Maryland Environmental Trust in 1984. Features of prominence and pride cited by Alverta and Louise are a pond for waterfowl, a substantial home built in 1928, a smokehouse, a barn, and a circa 1800 springhouse. The property is included in the Maryland Historical Trust's Historic Sites Survey.
Alverta and Louise were dedicated naturalists and enthusiastic about conservation and enhancement of the many resources found on their land. Their generous bequest is maintained as an endowment to support the activities and mission of The Maryland Environmental Trust, in accordance with the wishes of the Dillon family.
