Nominations open for CRD’s EcoStar community awards

Do you know an individual or group that is making outstanding contributions to enhance our environment?

If so, nominate them for an EcoStar Community Environmental Award, co-ordinated by the Capital Regional District.

The awards are open to individuals, businesses and other community or non-profit groups.

There are seven submission categories: community environmental leader, youth leader, water stewardship, waste reduction, climate action, land stewardship, and integrated watershed management.

Nominations can be completed online at www.crd.bc.ca/ecostar until April 7 at midnight. For those without Internet access, a paper nomination form is available at 625 Fisgard St.
