Last month we celebrated the environmental achievements of community members at our annual Friends of the Credit Conservation Awards. The event recognizes the leadership and commitment of people who work to improve the environment.

At this year’s ceremony, we honoured 22 recipients in four categories: Certificate of Merit, Conservation Award of Distinction, Young Conservationist and Conservation Award of Excellence. It was a night full of inspiration, laughter and recognition of those who have gone above and beyond.

For our staff and Board of Directors, the Conservation Awards is an opportunity to celebrate and offer a heartfelt thank you. For more than 20 years, we have recognized individuals, landowners, community groups, small businesses, corporations, municipalities and agencies that have made a significant environmental contribution in the Credit River watershed.

This year’s recipients all had one goal in mind: restore and protect the natural environment in their community.  They participated in tree plantings, incorporated low impact development on their properties and worked to educate and promote environmental awareness. They impacted our future in a positive way.  Hats off to this year’s wonderful award recipients. It was an honour and a privilege to work with you.
