Islanders receive environmental recognition
Protecting the environment or enhancing a community in the Islands Trust area could earn an individual, business or group some recognition.
Islands Trust is accepting nominations for its 12th annual Community Stewardship Awards, looking for those who have made a difference to life on the 13 major and more than 450 smaller islands between the B.C. mainland and southern Vancouver Island.
“There are so many wonderful people who invest their energy, time and imagination into our communities and environment. This program is a way to acknowledge their work and initiative,” said Sheila Malcolmson, chairwoman of the Trust’s council. “Every year, our work is reinvigorated and inspired by these amazing islanders and the work they do.”
Stewardship awards will be given to at least two individuals and two organizations, providing there are sufficient qualifying entries to justify an award. Each nominator can submit two nominations per category.
Deadline for nominations is April 26.
Nomination forms and more details, including lists of past recipients, are available at http://islandstrust.bc.ca/poi/awards.cfm.
Award recipients will be announced following the June Trust council meeting, and presented with their awards in the fall.
