The nominations for the Langley Environmental Hero Award will open at the end of this month, and Langleyâ€™s MP is encouraging people to think of worthy locals.
â€œWe invite Langley residents to mark March 25th on their calendars as their first opportunity to nominate an Environmental Hero,â€ said Mark Warawa. â€œThere are many environmental heroes who have greatly contributed their time and energy in order to make the Langleys a more environmentally sustainable place to live. In 2014, we hope to continue to recognize these unsung heroes for their valuable contribution to our community.â€
The award has been presented annually since 2006 to recognize grassroots efforts, said Warawa.
Winners will be named on Canada Day, and will be commemorated with a plaque and a heritage apple tree to be planted at the Fort Langley National Historic Site over the summer.
Nomination forms will be available starting on March 25 on Warawaâ€™s website at markwarawa.com, or at leps.bc.ca.
There are three categories of nominations: youth, individual adult, and business.
