As mentioned over the previous months, 2021 was a record breaking year for us as we won 4 awards in recognition for our work at Granville Island, Two River Green, and Tsawwassen Springs (click here to read more).
But at the November award ceremony gala, we had an extra special surprise when our very own Hayley Chan was honoured with the Young Member of the Year Award! This award is presented to an individual who is 35 years old or younger and whose services or contribution to the industry, and the association, has been exemplary. This award recognizes such activities as volunteer time, extraordinary efforts, financial or other contributions to the BCLNA or its members.
As our Plant Health Care (PHC) Manager, Hayley impresses clients with her knowledge of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and she sparks interest in plant pests and pathogens in those around her. She has been working with various levels of government as part of the Japanese Beetle Action Team to help eradicate this invasive pest from the Vancouver False Creek area. She is a Certified Landscape Manager, Certified Lawn Care Technician, Landscape IPM Certified Pesticide Applicator and has a Diploma in Residential Landscaping. Congratulations Hayley!
