The environmental community acknowledges the creativity, diligence and commitment of our peers in presenting the awards.
Prairie Crocus Award
In March of 2004, Save Our Seine was awarded the 2003 Prairie Crocus Award from the Manitoba Naturalists Society. This was the first time an organization has received the honour in the award’s nine-year history. JP Brunet (who joined SOS in 1990) accepted the award on behalf of the SOS Board and members. The Prairie Crocus Award is presented by the Society for outstanding service in preserving a part of Manitoba in its natural state. The award was presented to SOS for its efforts in rescuing and preserving the Seine River and its habitat over the past 14 years.
Award of Excellence
To recognize Manitobans who embrace the spirit and principles of sustainable development, the Manitoba Round Table for Sustainable Development established the Manitoba Excellence in Sustainability Awards.
