bluebird recovery program san juan islandsMembers of the Stewardship Network of the San Juans agree that there is much to gain from working together as a coalition. While each member organization has it’s own specific mission, purpose and structure all share the common aim of caring for the island environment we call home.  We share information and ideas, explore potential collaboration, encourage sustainable living, and organize special events to foster public participation in stewardship efforts.

One of those special events is an annual celebration where Good Steward Awards are presented to exemplary members of our community.  Each year we ask for nominations in the categories of business, educator, farm, individual, shoreline, woodland, village, and youth.  These individuals and businesses are not conservation professionals but have shown their commitment to preserving the land and sea of the San Juan Islands. The intent is to acknowledge the efforts of stewardship in everyday living.
