Environmental Recognition Award

Each year the City of Davis recognizes community contributions to Davis' environmental quality of life in three categories: individual/group, a business, and non-profit organization, agency or school. Additionally, a special category, the Environmental Legacy Award, may be presented for sustainability efforts that have made a difference as part of Davis’ history over more than 100 years.
