“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.
