Nominations are now open for city recognition of people working to preserve the integrity, and beauty of the City’s natural areas and for contributions that improve our environmental collective well-being.
Between now and Sept. 10, individuals, groups, businesses, industry representatives and youth who have contributed to the common cause of environmental stewardship can be nominated for the following categories:
- Air Quality / Alternative Transportation (is there an avid walker or cyclist near you?)
- Pesticide Free / Urban Agriculture (who’s working with nature and sharing their bounty?)
- Water / Energy Conservation (who’s saving our resources?)
- Habitat Protection / Creation (who’s rebuilding and restoring habitat?)
- Waste Reduction (who’s a role model when it comes to reducing waste?)

- Environmental Excellence (for outstanding achievement!)
“The City’s Stewardship Awards provide an opportunity to honour citizen dedication to conservation, and for ongoing work to improve the beauty and health of our local environment,” says Mayor Andy Adams.
