A Thank You To – & From – The Team

A big reflection shared at the AGM was how thankful we were for our teams adaptability and commitment through all the challenges of the 2020 year. Our AGM is normally a great time for the team to connect with members so we can talk projects and share gratitude for peoples ongoing support. 

With less chance to connect in person – here’s a recap of who makes up AWARE’s staff team and our 2020 Board. We can’t wait to get together again soon!

Spread The Word: Being A Good EcoCitizen

At the AGM we highlighted that Spring is the perfect time to be sharing our EcoCitizen Video which was designed for anyone in Whistler to use to promote positive stewardship of nature.
