Problem: Disappearing salt marshes and the need for alternative energy sources.

Solution: A tidal mill using the ocean’s tides to generate energy and an environmental education program.

In 2006 the Board of Trustees of the Christopher Columbus Fellowship Foundation added a new award, named for the Foundation’s late Founder, the Honorable Frank Annunzio. This year’s award focused on energy conservation or alternative energy sources. The Saltwater Marshals team members each received a $1,000 saving bond. A $5,000 donation is presented to a non-profit organization of their choice to help implement their program.
