The 19th Annual Larimer County Environmental Stewardship Awards program is underway. This year’s nomination deadline is Friday, September 13, 2013.  You can nominate online at www.larimer.org/boards/eab/Awards/awards.htm or print a form at  
www.larimer.org/boards/eab/Awards/ESAform.pdf, and mail it in to the address listed on the form.
 
A total of 66 awards have been presented since 1995 when the program began. See a complete list of winners since 1995 at: www.larimer.org/boards/eab/Awards/env_awards_winners.htm. Last year there were three recipients: The Redstone Canyon Mitigators, Fred Allen, and The Environmental Learning Center.
 
The Board of County Commissioners, together with the County's Environmental Advisory Board (EAB), is seeking nominations for 2013 efforts. The awards acknowledge individuals and organizations in Larimer County who have undertaken activities that demonstrate exceptional stewardship of the environment. Residents, schools, agencies, government, businesses, and other organizations are encouraged to participate. Projects can be self-nominated or nominated by others, and can be either one-time efforts or on-going activities. 
 
The Larimer County Environmental Advisory Board will review the initial nominations, and make recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners who will present awards in December. For more information about the Award or process please contact Doug Ryan, Larimer County Environmental Health at 498-6777, dryan@larimer.org or Michelle Bird at the Board of County Commissioners’ Office, 498-7015, mbird@larimer.org.
