The Shubenacadie Canal Commission was pleased to present Warwick Lambert with the 2019-2020 Henry Findlay Lock Keeper Award at its annual general meeting on June 24, 2019. This award is presented annually to friends of the Shubenacadie Canal and Waterway who dedicate their time and effort towards improving this provincial heritage resource and its parklands for the enjoyment of all residents and tourists.
Warwick Lambert received the award for his many of hours of dedication to the production of digitally animated videos demonstrating the technical workings of the canal, including the marine railway in Dartmouth and the locks on the other parts of the canal system. These videos demonstrate how each part of the marine railway and canal worked, in a manner that is accessible and informative for viewers both young and old. The SCC uses these videos for interpretive and promotional purposes at the Fairbanks Centre as well as on our website and social media.
Warwick continues to be an active volunteer at the SCC, generously contributing his creative talents and overall enthusiasm for our mission to interpret and promote the canal and waterway system on behalf of all Nova Scotians.
