Friends of the Credit Conservation Awards

Submission deadline has been extended to Sunday, March 11, 2018.

Nominate an environmental champion today!


Our ‘Friends of the Credit’ Conservation Awards program recently had a makeover!  After more than 30 years of awards history, it was time to update our program to match CVC’s current vision.

These awards are very special to us. They honour the important work being done in our community by people who love the environment as much as we do. These contributions are making a significant and positive impact on the health of the Credit River Watershed.

Our awards program showcases the work of our partners and neighbours. They are leaders that share our vision of a thriving environment that protects, connects and sustains us.  And they’re as inspired by nature as we are!

What do our new awards look like?

Our Conservation Awards program now has eight categories that represent the hard work and accomplishments of all our partners and watershed friends.  Each year, one nominee will receive an award for each of the following categories:

  • Youth Achievement
  • Outstanding Volunteer
  • Environmental Awareness
  • Landowner Stewardship
  • Corporate Leadership
  • Green Cities
  • Legacy Donor
  • Watershed Excellence

How do you nominate someone?

Do you know a school, community group or landowner that deserves recognition for their environmental efforts? Or an organization that goes above and beyond to reduce their environmental impact and plans for a sustainable future through Corporate Social Responsibility? Is there an individual that inspires others through their efforts to protect nature for future generations?  If so, nominate them for a ‘Friends of the Credit’ Conservation Award.

Here’s our nomination process in three easy steps:

  1. Review eligibility and award descriptions
  2. Review the nomination process 
  3. Complete the nomination form….don’t forget to have your supporting material ready (photographs, newspaper clippings or reports etc)

Submission deadline extended to March 11th.
