2000 Calypso Orchid Environmental Award

In 2000, its inaugural year, the award was shared by the Cape Croker First Nation and the Peninsula Bruce Trail Club for the construction of a new 800 metre long boardwalk through an environmentally sensitive marsh at the head of Sydney Bay. This is a fine example of the cooperation seen up and down the length of the Trail to enhance the walking experience, while also protecting the natural environment for all to enjoy.

Beth Kümmling, Chair of the Environment Committee, presented the award at the AGM to Nathan Keeshig, Cape Croker Indian Park Superintendent, and Donna Baker, President of the Peninsula Club. Each of the award recipients received a certificate and an engraved ironwood walking staff, donated by Hikers Haven. The Bruce Trail Conservancy hopes that the award will acknowledge environmental efforts for years to come, and help keep the vision of Arthur Storey – “to encourage and recognize efforts towards preserving and nurturing the unique treasures of the Bruce Trail” – alive and well..
