Lacombe County launches Environmental Stewardship Award

The winner will be selected by a judging panel and will receive a one-time cash prize of $1,500.

Until Aug. 3, Lacombe County residents can be nominated for Lacombe’s Environmental Stewardship.

On June 30, the County announced its Environmental Stewardship Award, which is designed to recognize a Lacombe County resident who practices environmental conservation and sustainability on their property.

Any member of the public can nominate an individual for this award. A committee will select the successful recipient.

“The winner will be selected by a judging panel and will receive a one-time cash prize of $1,500,” said Nicole Plewis, Lacombe County communications coordintor.

To be eligibile, one must meet the following criteria:

– The nominee must be a resident and practicing environmental stewardship within Lacombe County

– Can only be a recipient of the award once.

– Nomination forms need to be submitted before Aug. 31, 2021.

Lacombe County is committed to supporting our resident’s understanding of environmental sustainability and aiding them in making decisions that consider their relationships to natural systems, communities, and future generations.

Earlier this year, we implemented the Environmental Community Engagement Program, which replaced the Environmental Improvement Grant program.

The Environmental Community Engagement Program will run for three years and comprises three components: a wetland education program, an environmental stewardship award, and a resident environmental sustainability program.
