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.
