The Frank Maranville Memorial Stewardship Award

The most prestigious stewardship award given by the branch honors Frank Maranville for his decades of perseverance and leadership in trail maintenance and conservation. The award is presented for long-term service to our public lands and our environment.

For decades Olympia Mountaineers member Frank Maranville demonstrated the epitome of leadership in climbing, setting first summit routes, teaching, and exploring. He also developed an enormous capacity for leadership in trail maintenance. He formed and nurtured the Mt. Rose Trail Crew, first with friends from the Olympia Mountaineers, then with his colleagues from his career as a chemical engineer in the timber products industry. With decades of service, at least twice weekly, to the trails in Olympic National Forest and Park, Frank has left an unrivaled legacy. We have named our highest award for Frank.
