Honourable mentions went to Stuart Bezant, Erica Newton and Erin Parks. The contest is hosted by the Trent Nature Areas Stewardship Advisory Committee which aims to promote the protection, awareness and appropriate University and public use of the Trent Nature Areas.
The Nature Areas are natural preserves and comprise the greatest proportion of Trent University lands. The Nature Areas are characterized by natural areas consisting of woods, former farm fields, meadows, drumlins, wetlands, streams and other functions of environmental significance. The Nature Areas are fundamental to the protection and enhancement of the natural and rural setting of the campus. These lands support compatible academic and research functions within the University and are open to the public for recreational use.
