It’s time to celebrate outstanding environmental action with the city’s 11th annual Stewardship Awards.

Nominate individuals, groups, developers, business, industry representatives and youth for outstanding environmental achievements by Sept. 10.

This year’s award categories include:

  • Air quality…is there a wise wood burner near you?
  • Pesticide free…who’s using integrated pest management strategies, or gone organic?
  • Water/Energy Conservation…who’s making the most of our precious resources?
  • Habitat Protection/Creation…who’s protecting and enhancing natural spaces?
  • Waste Reduction…who’s a role model when it comes to reducing waste?
  • Other Areas of Environmental Excellence…your creative ideas go here!

“So many people volunteer their time and energy to improve the health and beauty of Campbell River’s natural environment,” says Mayor Walter Jakeway.

“It’s important to recognize the people who have a vision, a passion and then make the effort to care for the outdoors.”

“We’re looking forward to recognizing the efforts of people who promote the quality of life that makes Campbell River such a clean, green and spectacular place to live,” adds Councillor Larry Samson, one of the judges for the stewardship awards program.
