Tree Planting and Museum Cleanup in May

At its 37th annual Conservation Awards ceremony on Tuesday, October 16, 2018, the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority paid tribute to 23 individuals, businesses and groups who are working in their communities to improve our environment.

During his remarks, Aurora Mayor and LSRCA Board Chair Geoffrey Dawe spoke to the outstanding achievements of the award winners. “Each and every one of our recipients has made a positive impact on the health of our watershed, in their own community and collectively, across the entire watershed community. Tonight, we thank them, we honour them and we acknowledge that their actions are an inspiration for others."
