They're the individuals, families, groups and businesses who put their time and energy into improving the Grand River watershed. Many do it without recognition, satisfied with the legacy they leave for future generations.
The Grand River Conservation Authority thinks they deserve to be acknowledged and is looking for nominations for its annual Watershed Awards. The GRCA has presented the awards since 1976.
There are the two categories:
Honour Roll Awards - presented for a sustained record of environmental achievement over an extended period of time
Watershed Awards for outstanding examples of environmental work
Instructions on how to fill out the form and submit it to the GRCA are included on the form. Please download our nomination form. Please make sure you save the form on your computer as you are filling it out, otherwise the information may be lost. The form must be submitted before May 1, 2017.
The winners will be honoured at a special event in October.
Please note that past winners of Watershed Awards are not eligible to receive this award a second time, however they can be nominated for an Honour Roll Award.
