The Scott Beemer Nature Award is an annual award of a certificate and $200 presented by Nature Guelph to an individual or group who has made a significant contribution to nature education, conservation or stewardship in Guelph or Wellington County. The recipient will be selected by a committee of five club members selected and chaired by the President or nominee. The Award will be made at the Annual General Meeting in December.
Born and raised in Guelph, Scott Beemer first started attending club meetings with his beloved mother Sue when he was a high school student. He was keenly interested in all speakers’ subject matters, and often approached guest speakers after their presentations to engage in further exploration of the topic. Scott was always a gentle and good-natured presence on field outings of all kinds. His uncomplicated love of all nature is sadly missed. Nature Guelph wishes to honour his contributions by this award recognizing those who further our mission to educate about and conserve nature in Guelph.
