Volunteer stewardship recognized at 2015 Order of the Bighorn Awards

Since its inception in 1982, the Order of the Bighorn has recognized the voluntary contributions of Albertans to the conservation of our province’s fish, wildlife and natural spaces.

This year was no exception. During the 18th Order of the Bighorn Awards on March 6, Hon. Kyle Fawcett, Minister of Environment and Sustainable Resource Development, was joined by stakeholders who are committed to maintaining and building a healthy environmental future, to honour six individuals whose efforts emulate what the awards are all about.

Inductees included Bazil Leonard of Grande Cache, Gottlob Schmidt of Hanna, John Campbell Jr. of Calgary, Maurice Nadeau of Bonnyville, Tim Dietzler of Calgary and Tom Partello of Canmore.
