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 2.
