AWA’s Wilderness and Wildlife Trust Lecture and Awards
AWA’s Annual Wilderness and Wildlife Lecture is an opportunity to present the ideas of researchers in a field related to conservation of wilderness that will inspire and challenge AWA to seek new directions and ways to increase its effectiveness. AWA is proud to present these lectures in pursuit of its mission “Defending Wild Alberta through Awareness and Action.” Martha Kostuch was an expert in consensus-based decision making her work helped join groups that traditionally might not have worked together. She sought ways to make the system work so we could move forward. AWA has honoured her legacy and her memory by naming our annual lecture the Martha Kostuch Annual Wilderness and Wildlife Lecture.
