Calling all tree-loving, bunny-hugging, dirt worshipers!

Don’t forget — it’s award season here in the San Juans! The Oscars have nothing on the Finnies. Know someone who deserves to walk the stewardship red carpet? Nominate them for a Good Steward Award!

Since 2008, the Good Steward Awards, affectionately known as “Finnies,” have been sponsored by the Stewardship Network of the San Juans in recognition of individuals, families, teachers, students and businesses who are not conservation professionals and who have shown a long-term commitment to preserving the land and sea of the San Juan Islands archipelago in their daily lives. 

Award recipients will be presented with large ceramic “Finnies,” handcrafted fish-shaped creations. Award presentations will be in April, as the Islands celebrate Earth Day.

To nominate a person or business, email the Finnie Committee at stewardshipsji@gmail.com.   Nominations are due on Monday, March 2nd.
