The ceremony was a lovely reminder that there are many inspirational people, communities, groups, museums and societies, from across the country, who are all doing their bit to engage, encourage, looking after, educating and conserving nature and the world around them. This Award Ceremony highlights that and rewards these amazing people by recognising all their hard work and it was an honor to be nominated along side them!
