With gratitude for the gracious memorial from her family, the Garden Club of Virginia established the Bessie Bocock Carter Conservation Award in 2009. The award’s intent is to fund implementation of a conservation project that will serve as a catalyst for community action. It is a monetary award presented annually to a person, persons or club, or in concert with other Virginia conservation organizations, for either natural resource conservation or environmental protection within the Commonwealth.
Proposals must be submitted to the Conservation Committee, and recipients are announced at the Annual Meeting.
The award makes possible implementation of specific, tangible projects that directly benefit natural resource conservation or environmental protection within the Commonwealth
Award recipients’ contribution to the project must be directly evident and measurable
Each project would inspire others to outstanding accomplishments on behalf of Virginia’s natural resources.
Nominations should be mailed by March 1 to:
