New program to recognize watershed stewards
Submitted by the Muskoka Watershed Council
Our watersheds are made up of thousands of people who take small steps every day to help keep our watersheds healthy and beautiful, and the Muskoka Watershed Council (MWC) wants to help recognize these watershed stewards!
The MWC is thrilled to announce the launch of the Doug Cross Stewardship Recognition Program to help local nonprofit organizations celebrate members who go above and beyond to help protect our watersheds.
The program is named after former MWC member Doug Cross, who used his vast experience and expertise in media communication to help spread MWC’s messages to the community. The MWC received a generous donation in 2020 upon his passing, and the MWC uses these funds to raise awareness of good watershed stewardship practices.
Eligible organizations can register during the month of January to receive a free recognition kit to give to a member they have identified as a good watershed steward. Each Recognition Package includes a Certificate of Recognition and a Hidden Habitat Native Plant Nursery Gift Card!
What is a good steward of a watershed? We’ve set some criteria to help organizations select worthy recipients on our website, and we’ve also provided some ideas on how to select a recipient, but it’s up to each organization to decide what’s best for them.
