Each year this award is presented to an individual, family, business or organization that the Pembina Valley Watershed District (PVWD) will recognize within the district for their wise management and conservation practices. The PVWD board nominates and judges the WD Award winner for their efforts they have shown in the areas of sustainability, conservation and/or water stewardship.
