Bessie Bocock Carter Conservation Award 2018

We are so excited that each member will be able to vote for this worthy award this year. Established in May 2009, this award is to fund implementation of a conservation project that will serve as a catalyst for community action. It is a monetary award for natural resource conservation or environmental protection within the Commonwealth. Henceforth, the winner of the Bessie Bocock Carter Conservation Award will be announced at the GCV Annual meeting. Please watch for a Survey Monkey ballot in your Inbox soon! There will be a full description of each submission on the ballot. Click HERE to read about them in advance. This vote is open to ALL our members.
