Blooming Boulevards receives a Friends of the Credit Conservation Award for Environmental Awareness
by Jeanne McRight
Last night I was delighted to accept a Credit Valley Conservation Friends of the Credit Conservation Award, in behalf of Blooming Boulevards. The award was in the Environmental Awareness category. Deep thanks to all our hard-working volunteers, members and donors whose ongoing efforts in behalf of increasing and linking pollinator habitat gardens throughout Mississauga are having an impact!

Community Leaders Honoured through Environmental Awards Program
Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) honoured local partners and neighbours at the annual Friends of the Credit Conservation Awards, held last night at Carl’s Catering The Glen in Brampton. Over 60 guests and representatives from CVC’s Board of Directors celebrated those inspired by nature to undertake important environmental work in the Credit River Watershed.
“On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to congratulate our award recipients for their outstanding work,” said Councillor Tom Adams, CVC Chair and Councillor for Town of Oakville. “Everyone honoured at the ceremony has worked hard to improve the health and well-being of communities in the watershed and we’re proud of their environmental efforts.”
CVC recognized conservation efforts in seven award categories including: Youth Achievement, Outstanding Volunteer, Environmental Awareness, Landowner Stewardship, Corporate Leadership, Green Cities and Watershed Excellence.
The Conservation Awards program began in 1986. Awards are presented by CVC’s Board of Directors to honour those who demonstrate the organization’s core values of leadership, collaboration, innovation and integrity through environmental practices. Since the program began, CVC has recognized approximately 388 community leaders for work that connects people to nature, knowledge to action and inspires a deep appreciation for the local environment.
Each community leader recognized by the program demonstrates a passion for environmental work and is inspired by nature to take action. The Conservation Awards program recognizes projects and initiatives that help protect, connect and sustain the Credit River Watershed.#mississauga
