Thanks to you all! We were first in the voting competition!

We never imagined that the response to our prompts would be so impressive.So many of you opened the email every day and clicked on the voting link that we provided. We would have never managed to win this Community Champions Conservation Award without you all voting for us so many times. A true collaborative effort. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

It’s a very cool thing for such a small local organization, tucked away in the forest, to win a province wide competition. We all pulled off an amazing thing! It’s $10.000 dollars that we will receive and we will use this money to demonstrate environmental leadership in our communities in the coming years.

Thanks to you all!

The intention for our project is to deepen students understanding of, and connection to, water-based issues and have them become involved in local action projects as stewards.
