Essex Region –  Essex Region Conservation is seeking nominees who have made an environment impact in the Place for Life!  “Over the past 28 years, we’ve had the opportunity to recognize organizations and individuals that are truly making a difference in protecting and improving our region’s environmental sustainability,” says Danielle Breault Stuebing, Director of Communications and Outreach Services.  “It’s always an inspiring time to learn more the impact these nominees are making.”

The 2019 Conservation Awards will honour and recognize those in the community who have made outstanding contributions towards improving our natural environment, sustaining and enriching the Essex Region as the Place for Life. “Past award winners have created monarch butterfly habitat, been involved in restoration projects, inspired and engaged others to action, committed to climate action, and so much more,” Breault Stuebing adds.  The annual Awards will be presented to individuals and organizations in four categories:

 

The Youth Award recognizes a youth leader who has undertaken habitat or conservation projects or activities and is a student in the elementary or secondary schools of our region.

 

The Education Award for excellence in conservation education programs or projects in schools, organizations, companies, youth groups, etc.

 

The Volunteer Award for outstanding effort in volunteering time and services for conservation programs and projects;

 

The Environmental Achievement Award for programs or projects which have enhanced the region’s environment in a significant way.  In addition to individuals and organizations, municipalities can also be nominated for environmental achievements.

 

Nominations can be submitted online at https://essexregionconservation.ca/conservation-awards, or nominators can simply write a one page summary of the individual or organizational accomplishments that merit the receipt of the award.  Please be sure to include the category, name, address and phone number of the nominee, in addition to your own name, address and telephone number.  Nominations close on Friday, December 13, 2019.  The awards, presented since 1992, will be announced at ERCA’s Annual General Meeting in January 2020.

Since 1973, Essex Region Conservation has been sustaining and enriching the environment of the Windsor-Essex-Pelee Island region to ensure it is the Place for Life.
