Nominations for the 2018 Kallemeyn Award will be accepted until February 19, 2018.

The Kallemeyn Award is presented annually by the Foundation to an individual who has demonstrated in the Rainy-Lake of the Woods watershed:

  • Outstanding professional achievement in scientific research or resource management.
  • Significant contributions to collaborative and cooperative approaches to research or resource management internationally.

This award is named in honor of its first recipient, Larry Kallemeyn, USGS (retired). Throughout his career Larry made significant contributions to scientific understanding and resource management in the basin. Importantly, Larry was the consummate professional and his collaborative and cooperative approach contributed significantly to cross border collaboration, public engagement and understanding for this international lake and its watershed.

The selection committee for the Kallemeyn Award consists of researchers and resource managers from both Canada and the United States. At the recommendation of the selection committee, the Foundation presents the Kallemeyn Award annually at the International Rainy-Lake of the Woods Watershed Forum.
