Join us for our first ever summer open house at the Eco-Centre, sponsored by Assiniboine Credit Union! We will have the BBQ out on our rooftop patio, providing great local food (including veggie options). Stop by for a burger and a drink, network with the environmental community, and help us celebrate this year’s nominees for the Anne Lindsey Protecting our Earth Award.

This year’s nominees are:
1. Lorena Mitchell: works in the renewable energy sector as the founder and president of Evolve Green, designing and installing solar and wind systems across the province.
2. Geraldine McManus: established Spirit of the Buffalo, a prayer camp set up where she teaches visitors about reconciliation and the importance of protecting land and water.
3. The Lake Winnipeg Community-Based Monitoring Network: trains citizen scientists to collect water samples across Manitoba, which helps decision-makers take action to improve the health of Lake Winnipeg.

Special guests include Anne Lindsey herself and the Honourable Rochelle Squires, who will be presenting the award at 6:30pm.

Please RSVP before Friday, June 21. If you have any questions, call 204.947.6511.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
