Congratulations to Ed Hunter who received an Environment Award at the 2023 Lambton Shores’ Volunteer Appreciation Celebration. The Environment Award is presented to an individual or group for contributions to the protection, preservation, beautification, awareness and/or promotion of our local environment.
As one of the 2011 founding members of Lambton Shores Nature Trails, Ed has devoted his retirement years to serving on the Board of Directors, working cooperatively with community volunteers, encouraging youth participation and supporting the preservation of our local natural environment for free public enjoyment. Ed shares the LSNT team vision to preserve our local ‘Gems of Nature’ for future generations. His own enjoyment of nature year-round -- through hiking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, birdwatching and photography – makes Ed the perfect poster person for LSNT!
Ed and his wife Fredi have been residents of Lambton Shores since their early twenties when Ed emigrated from England. Ed notes that, over the years he has “come to appreciate the beauty and significance of the rare Carolinian Forests surrounding us.” In his travels around the world, Ed tries to educate people about this diverse ecosystem.
All those who work with Ed agree that he is a selfless person who genuinely cares about the community in which he lives. Ed espouses “service before self” with his humble and steadfast efforts to make Lambton Shores a better place. He is a worthy role model who continues to pay it forward!
