Bursary: Clapp Conservation Award

The Clapp Conservation Award honours the remarkable efforts of Diane and Harold Clapp, founding members and long-time volunteers who have led by example in building MTRI. The purpose of this award is to encourage and build youth capacity for conservation in southwestern Nova Scotia. MTRI is a non-profit co-operative with a mandate to promote sustainable use of natural resources and biodiversity conservation in the Southwest Nova Biosphere Reserve and beyond through research, education, and the operation of a field station.
