Langley, BC— Today, Langley MP Mark Warawa joined the 2014 Environmental Hero Nominations Committee to announce that nominations for this year’s Environmental Hero Awards will open in one month (March 25, 2014). The nominations committee consists of representatives from each of the sponsoring partners: Langley Environmental Partners Society (LEPS), Fort Langley National Historic Site, Langley Times, and MP Mark Warawa.
“We invite Langley residents to mark March 25th on their calendars as their first opportunity to nominate an Environmental Hero,” said the Langley MP. “There are many environmental heroes who have greatly contributed their time and energy in order to make the Langleys a more environmentally sustainable place to live. In 2014, we hope to continue to recognize these unsung heroes for their valuable contribution to our community.”
“The Langley Environmental Hero Award began in 2006 as a way to acknowledge Langley’s grassroots efforts to protect the environment,” remarked Warawa. “Over the years, we’ve had the privilege of celebrating the hard work of many Langley residents who strive to keep Langley on the map as one of the most beautiful places to live. This year, we are happy to invite residents of the Langleys to join us once again in continuing that legacy.”
Winners of the Environmental Hero Awards will be presented on July 1st, 2014, at Langley’s Canada Day celebrations. Winners will also be commemorated with a plaque and a Heritage Apple Tree planted in their honour at the Fort Langley National Historic Site in the summer of 2014.
