Do you know someone who is a dedicated environmental steward, who speaks for the plants and animals, and has made a difference in a school, a classroom, or in our community? Nominations are now open for the 2020 Explore Ecology Environmental Stewardship Awards. Nominations are being accepted until April 1st, 2020.
Explore Ecology’s Annual Environmental Stewardship Awards recognize teachers, school support staff, and students who promote environmental stewardship through education and action, who initiate positive change, and inspire their peers and colleagues in Santa Barbara County.

Winners will be honored at the Santa Barbara Earth Day Festival and give acceptance speeches on the Kids Stage, afterward joining CEC’s Environmental Hero on the Main Stage for further recognition.
