The Environmental Advisory Board is thankful for its
partnership with the City of Oaks Foundation, a local
non-profit organization with a mission to keep nature
nearby for all to enjoy, conserving land and
connecting children with nature.
The City of Raleigh Environmental Awards is in its 9th
year, made possible by the generous donations from our
sponsors and the tireless efforts of staff from the Office
of Sustainability; City Manager’s Office; Information
Technology; Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources; Public
Affairs/RTN; Solid Waste Services and Stormwater, and the
Environmental Advisory Board members: Beverley Clark, Rob
Gelblum, Anya Gordon, Larry Larson, Aranzazu Lascurain,
Laurel Passera, Justin Senkbeil, Brian Starkey and Dave Toms.
The awards are handcrafted from locally
repurposed wood or fallen trees by Bill Wallace of
New Light Wood Works in Wake Forest.
Thanks to CompostNow, Irregardless Cafe and YOU the
Raleigh Environmental Awards are a zero waste event,
with excess reception food donated to Inter-Faith Food
Shuttle. Renewable energy credits were purchased from NC
GreenPower to offset energy usage during the celebration.
