Honouring Ontario Heritage: Trent Professor Wins Award
Trent Professor Tom Whillans was one of two local people who received an award from the Ontario Heritage Foundation on Monday, March 31.
Honoured for oustanding work as a volunteer in both natural and cultural preservation, Prof. Whillans was recognized along with local resident Dr. Don Curtis.
Prof. Whillans has led the way in shoreline preservation along the Trent Severn Waterway, through the Trent Severn Shoreline Naturalization Project. This project was started in 1996 and was designed to educate landowners about natural alternatives for shoreline stabilization.
The awards were given to Dr. Curtis and Dr. Whillans by Bill Byrick, a member of the Board of Directors of the Ontario Heritage Foundation and the director of Athletics and Recreation at Trent University.
