Not bogged down

Though she didn’t win in the end, Eliza Olson, president of the Burns Bog Conservation Society, was among the top 10 finalists in CBC’s 2010 Champions of Change, a national award that honours Canadian volunteers.

Four of the finalists were from B.C.

“Biodiversity in all of its forms is vital for our planet, and it was really great to see it represented by the variety of Canadian volunteers on stage and by the different organizations that they volunteer with,” said Olson. “Two of us were nominated for the environment category, but even so, many of the issues that others were addressing were problems worsened, in some way, because of degraded environments.”
