Building a Green Future

Wednesday, August 19, 2015 - 8:00pm

Every Year, the Carolinian Canada Conservation Awards celebrate the achievements of some pretty phenomenal people - this year was no exception.  Landowner Leader Rob Ward received his lifetime achievement conservation award on his farm in Elgin County.  Rob and Eleanor Ward have been organic farmers since the early 1970's before organic became the trendy thing it is today.  From stewarding species at risk to hosting naturalists, the Wards have been an outstanding example of how good practices and sustainable business can go hand-in-hand.

Meanwhile, Peter Cloud Sr. received the Carolinian Canada chair's award at Kettle and Stony Point First Nation.  Coordinating the First Nation's Species at Risk project for the last four years, Peter has lead a program that has been a fantastic example of multi-partner collaboration for an environmental cause - protecting the environment and the native species within it, and removing the invasive species that disrupt the natural balance of the local ecosystem.

You can read more about the Wards and Peter Cloud Sr. , and all of the other award recipients, on our Awards Webpage
