FGMDA founding partner, Julia Gersovitz, was awarded the 2015 Gabrielle Léger Medal for Lifetime Achievement in Conservation in Canada by the National Trust for Canada. The award was presented at the 2015 National Trust Conference in Calgary by the Honorable Lois Mitchell, Lieutenant Governor of Alberta. The committee recognized Julia’s contribution and added that “Mrs. Gersovitz is known among her peers for her thoughtfulness, tenacity and generous spirit as well as for the impeccable standard of her work. She is an inspiration to conservation professionals throughout Canada.” The Gabrielle Léger Medal is Canada’s premier honour for individual achievement in heritage conservation.
