Ewing partnered with Audubon International to recognize projects that promote a healthy environment, enhance the quality of life of the people using the space, and contribute to the economy. Audubon International is a nonprofit dedicated to environmental education.

Christine Kane, CEO of Audubon International, said, “We want to recognize and promote the positive impact landscapes and other green spaces have in creating more sustainable communities.”

Any landscaping company, organization or municipality can be nominated for the Water & Sustainability Innovation Award. Projects initiated in the past three years may be considered, but they must have been fully operational for between one and two years.
