Covia Honored With the 2024 Environmental/Sustainability Award

Covia is pleased to announce that we were honored with the 2024 Environmental/Sustainability Award during the Peterborough County Community Recognition Awards ceremony on Thursday, May 16th at the Douro Community Centre in Peterborough, Ontario. Our nomination by the Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre and the Lake Kasshabog Residents Association (LKRA) highlights our dedication to fostering lasting partnerships within our communities, as well as our innovative approach and leadership in environmental conservation and sustainability efforts.

Our initiatives encompass a wide range of activities, from safeguarding local wildlife to supporting environmental and wildlife initiatives led by the LKRA, as well as raising awareness among the public about environmental projects in the region.

Covia collaborates with the LKRA to reduce our environmental footprint in and around the lake. We facilitate a positive relationship with the residents by actively protecting local wildlife, such as establishing pollinator gardens, participating in the Birds Canada Loon Study by placing loon protection signs around the lake, and safeguarding local turtle populations through egg collection and incubation.
