Community Apr 20, 2017 Ancaster News

Jen Baker and Graham and Emma Cubitt will share this year’s Dr. Victor Cecilioni Award for the Environmentalist of the Year.

The award recognizes long-term efforts that create a significant impact in the community.

Baker has spent the last 20 years as a community volunteer, and has also worked as the land trust manager with the Hamilton Naturalists’ Club.

The Cubitts are longtime local food activists and were the key driving force behind the development of the Mustard Seed, Hamilton’s only community-owned grocery store.

A Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented to environmental educator and climate change activist Grant Linney, and three awards of merit go to The Stewards of Cootes Watershed; Russell Ohrt, a leader in urban farming and community gardening initiatives; and educator Kathy Zadvorny, who has worked to engage Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board students and teachers with the environment.

The awards will be presented at the 38th Annual Environmentalists of the Year Awards Dinner on Thursday, June 8 at the Michelangelo Banquet Centre, 1555 Upper Ottawa St. For tickets and more information, email contactus@environmenthamilton.org.
