Good stewards…takin’ names….

Jeff Hanson says the annual hunt is underway to identify the stewards of the islands:

Nominations Sought for the 2010 Good Steward Awards

You can help recognize individuals, families, and businesses that have made a significant impact on the conservation, preservation, and protection of the San Juans.

The Stewardship Network of the San Juans is seeking Nominations for the 2010 Good Steward Awards in the following categories: Shoreline Stewardship, Farmland Stewardship, Woodland Stewardship, Village Stewardship, Business Stewardship, Individual Stewardship, Youth Stewardship and Educator Stewardship.  The awards will be presented at the Sustainable Living Fair to be held at the Village Green in Eastsound, on Orcas Island on May 1, with field trips on Sunday, May 2.

The Sustainable Living Fair will have great music, engaging speakers, field trips and displays by organizations and businesses committed to creating a more environmentally and economically sustainable San Juan Islands. A highlight will be the presentation of the 2010 Good Steward Awards. The awards are handcrafted stoneware salmon by Crow Valley Pottery and have become know as the “Finnies.”  The Fair will share the Village Green with the first Orcas Farmer’s Market of the Season. The Sustainable Living Fair is a cooperative effort of the Stewardship Network of the San Juans and Sustainable Orcas Island.

If you know someone who deserves a Good Steward award, please make a nomination by April 1. Last year’s winners, award guidelines and nomination forms are available on the Stewardship Network website at

Organizations or individuals interested in providing displays and/or demonstrations at the Fair can sign up in person at the Orcas Island Library or download a registration form at
