Do you have a friend or neighbor that you’ve noticed takes exceptional care of their land? Perhaps you know a teacher that inspires their students to understand and care for the environment or a business that has been a leader in sustainable business practices?
Help the Stewardship Network of the San Juans recognize individuals, students, teachers and businesses that have made a significant impact on the conservation, preservation, and protection of the San Juan Archipelago! Many of these people are the “unsung” heroes of our islands; here is an opportunity to tell their story. If you know someone who deserves this award, please submit your nomination by March 25, 2013.
Nominations will be accepted in the following categories: Shoreline Stewardship, Farmland Stewardship, Woodland Stewardship, Village Stewardship, Business Stewardship, Individual Stewardship, Youth Stewardship and Educator Stewardship. Previous years’ winners, nomination forms and award guidelines can be viewed on the Stewardship Network website at www.stewardshipsanjuans.org/.
Awards will be announced the week of April 8 and at the Earth Day Celebration on Lopez Island on Saturday, April 20 (information on this event can also be found on the Stewardship Network website).
Nominations will be accepted online at the Stewardship Network website. Questions about the program or nominating process can be directed to Kathleen Foley at the San Juan Preservation Trust, 378-2461 or [email protected].
The Stewardship Network is a consortium of private and public organizations whose vision is a healthy, thriving ecosystem in the San Juan Archipelago from land to sea.
