Good Steward Awards recognize individuals 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 are presented with large pottery “Finnies,” fish-shaped creations handcrafted by Michael Rivkin and Jeffri Coleman, who owned and operated Crow Valley Pottery for over 30 years.  Finding a replacement potter to fill the mold was no easy task. This year, thankfully we will continue in tradition-with great gratitude to MaryJane Elgin.  We are so happy that MaryJane was willing to take on this project for the Stewardship Network.
