Extended Deadline for submissions – December 31st, 2023

It’s that time of year again – time to nominate a friend, colleague, or special group for the Colin Stewart Conservation Award. The award was established by HFN in 2004 to honour the late Colin Stewart’s many years of dedicated service to nature conservation in Nova Scotia. Colin was its first recipient.

Neither the nominee nor the nominator need be members of HFN, and a nomination can be made by any individual or group in Nova Scotia. The award is given annually for significant conservation efforts in the province, unless in a particular year we don’t receive any nominations or the nominations do not meet the award criteria. Nominations will be evaluated by the Colin Stewart Award Committee (its members are listed on Page Two of our quarterly newsletter).

Merely suggesting a nominee to the CSCA Committee is not sufficient. There are criteria that must be met, and the nomination must be submitted in writing by the nominator(s). The criteria and the nomination form (PDF) can be found on our website under “Conservation”.
