South Nation Conservation (SNC) is proud if its environmental programs, some of which have been adopted by other agencies; it’s proud of its staff, many of whom have been on board for most of their careers; and it’s proud of its close connections to the communities it serves.
Following SNC’s 70th anniversary in 2017, SNC is also very proud of its dedicated volunteers, many of whom channel their support through the authority’s 20-year-old committee structure.
Several long-time committee members have been acknowledged for their contributions through the “Friends of South Nation Conservation” recognitions. At a recent meeting of the Board of Directors, committees were thanked collectively for 20 years of service. A ceremonial shagbark hickory tree was planted in the backyard of the SNC office in Finch to honour committee members and their work. “The committee structure is one of the things about SNC that I appreciate the most. The fact so many people have voluntarily committed themselves to the organization and its mandate is a clear indication of broad community acceptance,” said authority chair Fernand Dicaire.
