The Robert Allen Memorial Stewardship Award was established by the Muskoka Watershed Council and the Three Mile Lake Association in memory of Robert’s dedication to education and awareness of native plants in Muskoka.

Robert G. Allen founded the company after graduating from the prestigious Niagara Parks Commission School of Horticulture in 1977. The School required a rigorous academic and intensive practical three-year apprenticeship. Moving back to his home area Robert quickly became aware of the desperate need for conscientious landscaping in Muskoka’s unique environment.
