Lifetime Achievement

Art Teasell

SARNIA

A posthumous award to Arthur Teasell for a lifetime dedicated to conservation was received by his son Scott. Teasell spent decades working patiently and with good humour to work with his community and municipal council to integrate conservation into the daily lives and environs of Sarnia residents. Most people would not recognize his name even as they enjoy one of the wildlife sanctuaries he protected or admire a forest he helped to manage. Teasell did not do it for recognition but for the love of nature and concern for the planet. He is not alone.  photo (right) T.Keep
