“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
                                          – Margaret Mead, Cultural Anthropologist & Women’s Rights Activist

Our staff are very lucky in the work that we do.  Each day we have the opportunity to make connections and be a part of something special.  We meet amazing people, excited to contribute to our environmental work.

Locally, Rosemary Keenan is one of those individuals whose dedication and advocacy for nature makes a huge difference. Her tireless work is unmistakeably motivating to everyone who meets her.  Rosemary is the Chair of the Sierra Club in Peel Region, a member of the Credit River Alliance, a community advocate for environmental protection – a voice for Mother Nature if you will – and last year’s Award of Distinction winner at our annual Friends of the Credit Conservation Awards.

Rosemary is the kind of person who encourages the best from everyone. Her warmth and enthusiasm is contagious.  She is a leader and epitomizes the words of Margaret Mead.  We consider Rosemary a friend and we were honoured to recognize her for her tireless work in the watershed.

Among her many accomplishments, Rosemary has helped to block the development of a quarry in Norval and turned Brampton into a certified cycling-friendly community. She advocated for the Urban River Valley designation for publically-owned valley lands in Mississauga.  And she influences decision makers through her work at a municipal level.

We consider ourselves so lucky to have Rosemary by our side!

If you know someone like Rosemary who deserves recognition for their hard work and commitment, why not bring attention to their efforts?  We are currently seeking nominations for our annual Friends of the Credit Conservation Awards. Eligibility is open in a variety of categories.  Learn more at http://www.creditvalleyca.ca/learn-and-get-involved/volunteer/friends-of-the-credit-conservation-awards-3/
