Recognition for Mary Valley helpers
PEOPLE in the Mary River catchment and their friends will soon be sharing the glory for the innovative habitat restoration works underway along the Mary River, according to Save the Mary River Co-ordinating Group president Glenda Pickersgill.
Announcing new recognition of community efforts, through the Mary River Environmental Awards, Ms Pickersgill said they would “acknowledge our communities' endeavours to improve sustainability and protect the environment within the Mary River catchment”.
The awards will have six categories for individuals, groups or organisations who have worked to improve, protect or enhance the river environment.
They would especially seek to recognise innovation in ideas, projects and achievements.
“It is time to acknowledge those who work to improve the environment we live in,” Ms Pickersgill said.
Organiser Jane Davissen said the awards would be announced at the Mary River Festival on November 13.
“They will highlight the achievements of the individuals, groups and businesses who nominate for these awards.
“It is inspiring to see people working to protect and enhance the environment,” she said.
