The Cataraqui Region Conservation Foundation has awarded the 2010 Education Conservation Award of Excellence to Queen's University Biological Station. Fittingly, the presentation was made on Earth Day, April 22, 2010 in a ceremony at the Outdoor Centre at the Little Cataraqui Creek Conservation Area.
Michael Bell, President CRCF made the presentation to Dr. Bruce Tufts, Director QUBS, citing:
The Queen’s University Biological Station, founded in 1945, is one of Canada’s pre-eminent research stations, shaped by a long-term expansive vision of the importance of the protection of natural spaces (currently 2789 hectares) for the purposes of research and education.”
