Soil and Water Conservation Society, Ontario ARTHUR D. LATORNELL AWARD OF MERIT 2017 Student Application
The Soil and Water Conservation Society, Ontario Chapter, was created in 1951 to give a focus to our members’ interests in conservation issues within Ontario. Our mission is to foster the science and art of soil, water and related natural resource conservation to achieve sustainability by promoting and practicing an ethic which recognizes the interdependence of people and the environment.
Each year, the Ontario Chapter of the Soil and Water Conservation Society (SWCS) presents a student with the A.D. Latornell Award of Merit. The Arthur D. Latornell Award of Merit Program celebrates Mr. Latornell’s commitment and service to our Society. Art was involved in virtually every aspect of resource conservation during his lifetime and was a role model for many beginning a career in conservation. He took particular interest in the mentoring and development of promising young people in the conservation field. He was President of the SWCS in 1978 and filled many Ontario Chapter Executive positions.
