Gordon Smith was dedicated to serving people and the environment. Specifically, he was passionate about stream and wetland stewardship and very active in conservation projects in both Aldergrove and Delta.
To inspire others to follow his path, his friends and colleagues initiated the “Gordon Smith Youth Environmental Stewardship Award” ten years ago.
This endowment fund provides an annual bursary to a student for his/her contribution to conservation in the region. The award is open to any youth in the region who has shown a passion for involvement in the environment and who intends to pursue post-secondary education in an environmental field.
The award is given out each year at the annual Metro Vancouver Regional Parks’ Celebrating Partnerships event which is normally held in March.
Nominations are available on our website at http://www.pacificparklands.com/Projects/gordonsmith.html
This year’s submission deadline is February 14th, 2012.
