THUNDER BAY — EcoSuperior Environmental Programs's work over two-and-a-half decades has won recognition from a national organization.
Green Communities Canada (GGC) recently presented the Thunder Bay-based organization with its Resilience Award.
GGC is a national umbrella group for community-based environmental non-profit groups.
In a news release, EcoSuperior said GCC's awards recognize the many "champions" who work and volunteer with the GGC and its member organizations.
EcoSuperior, it said, was identified as being one of these champions, by being both flexible and adaptable, while also reaching a milestone in longevity.
Executive director Sue Hamel said EcoSuperior is honoured to be acknowledged for its 25-plus years of "dedication to building a healthy future for people and the planet."
Hamel gave credit to past and present staff, board members, funders, volunteers, partners and all other community members who have contributed to the organization's success.
As well as EcoSuperior, GGC presented awards to community environmental organizations in Toronto, Hamilton, Winnipeg and Victoria.
