Tamarack Award

Tamarack Award

The Tamarack Award was instituted in 2004 by Ruth Pincoe, then President, to recognize members who go “above and beyond the call of duty” in their volunteer work for the Society.

It is awarded annually and is the subjective decision of the President or Co-presidents.

It is called the Tamarack because the physical acknowledgment of the award is a small version of a tamarack-twig decoy created by the Cree people of the James Bay area.
