NB Environmental Leadership Award

On Tuesday, November 10, 2009, New Brunswick Environment Minister Rick Miles was in the village of Cambridge-Narrows to present Robena Weatherley and the Canaan-Washademoak Watershed Association (CWWA) with Environmental Leadership Awards.

Robena's Lifetime Achievement award reflects both her work as a founding member of CWWA as well as her commitment to environmental advocacy throughout her life. As a member of CWWA, Robena has been instrumental in contributing to environmental education in the watershed and beyond through print and audio-visual publications, volunteering with schools, and other community activities.

CWWA received recognition in the Communities, Groups and Organizations category for our continuing work in monitoring water quality, fish populations, forest diversity, and stream ecology in the watershed.

Award recipients were presented with a framed pewter medal and a certificate for a tree to be planted to commemorate their achievements.
