This year, the Green Awards brought the Mid-Valley community together to celebrate individuals, businesses and organizations that are striving to keep our places healthy and green. We provided entertainment, hors d'oeuvres, dinner, drinks, a variety of auction items, and an awards presentation.

The 2018 Mid-Valley Green Awards was held in the historic Dye House at the Willamette Heritage Center in Salem. Our theme, Comunidad Verde (Green Community), embraced the rich diversity of our community and provided attendees the chance to experience the traditional foods, music and folk dances of Mexico. All proceeds from this event benefitted our outdoor education programs!

Our award selection process included nominations from the public, select partner organizations, and from our Green Awards selection and review panel members. The awards are sponsored each year by Straub Outdoors.
