Port Coquitlam Volunteer Award winner

On April 12, our very own, Dianne Ramage — won the Environmental Protection and Enhancement award, at Port Coquitlam's Volunteer Awards ceremonies.

Winner Dianne Ramage is a third-generation conservationist who has been working to protect Maple Creek for 13 years. She spends an average of two hours a day on activities such as monitoring water quality, surveys of fish and wildlife, public education, watershed advocacy, invasive plant removal and hands-on habitat rehabilitation. She also volunteers with a long list of other groups, including the Burke Mountain Naturalists, Friends of DeBoville Slough and the Pacific Salmon Foundation.

As one nominator said, "I don't think there is an hour a day that she is not thinking about how she can protect and enhance nature."

Hopefully someone will come up with some pictures, from the awards, hint,hint.
