Langley Environmental Hero Award Ceremony
at the Fort Langley National Historic Site
23433 Mavis Avenue, Fort Langley
21 businesses and individuals have been nominated this year for the 2012 Langley Environmental Hero Award. The caliber of nominees is outstanding in three categories; Individual, Business and Organization and Youth. The award ceremony will include the winners planting an heritage apple tree in their honour at the Fort Langley National Historic Site, as part of the Fort’s effort to re-populate its orchard.
Please join us for this incredible opportunity to meet Langley residents and business owners who have excelled in their field of environmental awareness, initiatives and action.
The Langley Environmental Hero Award began in 2006 as a way to acknowledge Langley’s grassroots efforts - big and small - to protect our environment. It quickly became clear that environmental stewardship in Langley is an issue which people are passionate about. Nominations have since expanded to honour environmental initiatives by individuals, businesses, organizations, and youth. Due to the huge response, a Nominee Selection Committee has been formed, comprised of sponsor representatives with an interest in the environment. The 2012 nominees are so exceptional, that we felt the need to extend the honour of a Lifetime Achievement Award for the first time.
