According to the program, “For 28 years, Shadrack has been a champion for conservation in the Kootenays. His dedication to land conservation and stewardship is worth great celebration.”

Shadrack served as an RDCK director from 2005-12 and in 2014 was instrumental in the establishment of the Kootenay Lake local conservation fund, which will see over $1 million invested in conservation over ten years.
