Land Awards Gala

2016 Land Awards Gala

Celebrating BC's land sustainability heroes

event photosThe Land Awards Gala is held every two years to celebrate achievements and leadership in sustainable land use. Each year, more than 250 guests join us to learn about the work that’s being done in communities across BC and to help us cheer on the winners and finalists of REFBC’s Land Awards.

The sixth Land Awards Gala will be held on October 21, 2016 at the Rocky Mountaineer Station in Vancouver. Guests will enjoy a cocktail reception and a sustainable three-course dinner with wine. In addition to the awards presentation, the event will also include a silent auction, entertainment, and an after party.


The gala will be emceed by Steve Patterson. As host of CBC Radio One’s wildly successful “The Debaters,” Patterson has become a household name, with more than 700,000 weekly listeners. Every comic can tell a joke, but Steve Patterson is a triple threat of funny, combining skills as a stand-up comedian with over 15 years of touring experience, a successful radio and TV host and a published humour writer.
