The Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority is seeking nominations for its annual Conservation Awards program.
Last year, the Conservation Authority recognized 29 individuals and groups from across the watershed for a wide range of activities, including tree planting, garbage clean ups, awareness raising, community events, and private property enhancements that attract pollinators and wildlife.
“We know there are environmental heroes out there and that they don’t seek recognition, but we feel it’s important to acknowledge their positive acts that do so much to help protect and enhance the watershed,” says Katarina Zeppieri, the conservation authority’s events and marketing specialist.
“These champions are ‘agents of change’ and an inspiration to others. Collectively, their small actions can and do make a big difference to the health of the watershed,” she adds.
This year’s celebration, which is by invitation only, is planned to be in-person for the first time since 2019.
If you know someone doing great things to support the health of the Lake Simcoe watershed, let the conservation authority know. The nomination process is simple and straightforward. The deadline to submit a nomination is June 3, 2022. Eligibility requirements and the award nomination form are now online.
It is the mission of the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority to collaborate, protect and restore the Lake Simcoe watershed with innovative research, policy and action.
