Nova Scotia Nature Trust receives Colin Stewart Conservation Award for 2015

The Colin Stewart Conservation Award was established by the Halifax Field Naturalists in 2004 to honour a lifetime of contributions by Colin towards conservation initiatives in Nova Scotia. The Award is given annually to an individual or group for significant conservation efforts in Nova Scotia when appropriate nominations are forthcoming. The recipient for 2015 was announced during a special celebration of HFN’s 40th Anniversary On October 1, 2015: Said Richard Beazley in presentation of the award, “The CSCA recipient for 2015 is 21 years old, hard working, known throughout NS, ambitious, energetic, outgoing, loved by both women and men alike, unpretentious, and successful.”

Richard paused. We held our breaths… who could this be? Smiles and nods of approval followed when he announced the recipient: the Nova Scotia Nature Trust. Likely no one would be more approving than Colin Stewart himself, who played a key role in the founding of the Nova Scotia Nature Trust. Betty Hodgson, spouse and helpmate of Colin Stewart presented the award which was received by Bonnie Sutherland, Executive Director of the Nova Scotia Nature Trust.
