TLC “Culture of Conservation” Awards
Each year at TLC’s Annual General Meeting, up to 3 awards are presented to recognize, honour and celebrate significant contributions that have been made toward creating a “culture of conservation” in British Columbia.
The awards are presented to individuals or groups who are associated in some way with TLC and who are resident and/or working in British Columbia on projects that include:
- conservation of natural areas
- conservation of cultural or built heritage properties
- conservation of agricultural properties
- conservation of outdoor recreational sites
- conservation of scientific or archaeological sites
- creating awareness and understanding of conservation issues
- engaging others in conservation projects
Recipients will be presented with their award at TLC’s AGM. Each recipient will also be asked to nominate a specific school, class or youth group who will (at a later date) be presented with a contribution of $150 to help them undertake a conservation project of their own, thus further building a culture of conservation in our province.
Making a Nomination
Any TLC Member may nominate (or suggest) an award recipient.
To make a nomination, please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org and include the following information:
- your name and contact information
- the name and contact information of the person or group you are nominating
- a brief description of the work they have done and the reason you are making the nomination
Nominations must be received on or before July 31.
Awards will be determined by a committee comprising two members of TLC’s Board of Directors and two members of TLC Staff. Once the award recipients have been determined, they will be contacted by the committee and arrangements made for presentation at our AGM. (Please note: those nominated but not selected will not be contacted or disclosed. Those nominations not selected may be nominated again in future years).
