					                             WE ARE PLEASED TO PRESENT THE NEW


         GERRY COUTURE STEWARDSHIP AWARD
   The purpose of this award is to foster public awareness of and appreciation for the
personal dedication required to conserve and manage our natural resources.
   A Yukon resident who demonstrates outstanding personal dedication to natural resource
conservation and management, and who demonstrates fearlessness and persistence in the
face of adversity, will be chosen to be the recipient of a Gerry Couture Stewardship Medal.
   This framed Award will be given annually, and the recipient will be chosen by the YCS
Gerry Couture Stewardship Award committee.


    Gerry Couture, for his passion for his work, is the inspiration behind this award.
    Gerry could be said to be among the Yukon’s colourful 5%, with his colourful background and
    matching character. Among his many life adventures, Gerry has served in the Canadian
    military, been a pilot, a tradesman, a competitive dog musher, a homesteader, farmer,
    hunter, fisher, and miner to name but a few of his past pursuits.
    Over the years, Gerry has supported a number of boards working to protect fish and wildlife
    habitats. Among his roles have included: 17 years as the Canadian Delegate to the Yukon
    River Salmon negotiations under the Pacific Salmon Treaty; 13 years helping to establish
    and chair the Fish and Wildlife Management Board; 12 years with the Salmon sub-
    committee, including sitting on the review board of the Yukon Placer Authorization and the
    consequent development of the new Placer Regime. Not to mention, his work with YCS as
    the Mining Coordinator!
    The Yukon Conservation Society Board is proud to commemorate Gerry’s spirit and
    dedication to conservation stewardship with the Annual Gerry Couture Stewardship Award.
