Each year the earnings from the Award fund are distributed to organizations whose goals are the conservation of marine and wildlife resources. A committee of Rotarians and nationally known conservationists select as recipients those entities or projects which the committee determines will promote conservation in either or both of these important fields. Since 1998 over $790,000 in grant funds have been awarded.

In addition, each year the Harvey Weil Sportsman Conservationist Award and Professional Conservationist Award are presented to internationally known individuals who have been leading conservationists in either the marine or wildlife environments. The recipients will be chosen by a select committee of Rotarians and wildlife and marine conservationists. The award is intended to provide international recognition to such individuals and to continue to promote the conservation and environmental interests in the same manner Harvey Weil did during his lifetime.

In 2014 the Steering Committee began a Living Legacy award as a periodic award to recognize individuals who inspire the love of the outdoors and its conservation through art.

Rotary Club - Corpus Christi

We will be getting back to our Rotary Roots on May 18th as we have our annual Vocational Luncheon that day. On that day, instead of meeting at the Ortiz Center, members will have an opportunity to attend a smaller meeting (up to 20 people) at one of our members' businesses. This is a great time to get to know one another better and learn about the host's business. And it is one of our favorite programs of the year.

We are currently seeking host locations. This is a great opportunity if you'd like our members to learn more about your business. As a host, you need to have room for approximately 10 - 20 people for lunch. As the host, you get to choose the program. So you could talk about your business or just choose to have everyone get to know one another. As the host, you can choose to either provide a lunch for the attendees at no charge, specify an amount they should pay you for their meal, or tell everyone to bring their own lunch. You decide.

If you are interested in being a host, or if you would like to suggest one of our members businesses that you think would be interested to visit, please let us know.
