2005 Steward Service Excellence Award

BLESS was honoured in September 2005 as recipient of the Steward Service Excellence Award. This award, the most prestigious given out by Alberta Community Development Parks and Protected Areas, is presented annually to one group or individual for, according to the Alberta government, "long-term commitment and consistent demonstration of the spirit of stewardship. Through dedication, positive attitude and actions, recipients have benefited their protected area and the Volunteer Steward program."

BLESS is very proud to have received this recognition for our successes in the past in protecting the Big Lake Natural Area and we look forward to continued active participation as stewards of the new Lois Hole Centennial Provincial Park.
