Thank you for submitting your nominations! 

The Conservation Awards Ceremony was created with the intent of providing public recognition to those who are contributing in some way to conservation efforts in our watershed. Invitations for nominations are solicited through various venues including media releases, correspondence and our website. 

No limit has been established on the number of awards to be presented allowing for flexibility of recognition.

Volunteerism is an important part of what makes communities thrive. The Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority established the annual Conservation Awards in 1991 as a means to recognize those who voluntarily contribute to the conservation, restoration, development and management of natural resources. The awards are intended not only for the volunteers who work directly on NPCA projects, but also those residents whose contributions to conservation efforts are evident in their daily lives to ensure that the treasured natural resources will be sustained for generations to come.

Invitations for nominations are disseminated to the public through various venues including media releases, correspondence and the NPCA website. The public are encouraged to submit nominations from their community.

In addition to these awards, the NPCA may select an individual, group and business to receive the Award of Merit.

The Award of Merit is intended to "recognize a significant achievement or contribution by an individual, group, and business to improve and restore our local environment for the benefit of all watershed residents".

The annual Conservation Awards celebration is an excellent way for the NPCA to publicly showcase the achievements of our volunteers and to recognize and promote the significant impact of the efforts of our community partners.
