Conservation award seeks nominees
Nominations are now being accepted for the prestigious Leopold Conservation Award®, honoring agricultural landowners in Colorado who demonstrate outstanding stewardship and management of natural resources.
Sand County Foundation, the nation’s leading voice for conservation of private land, presents the Leopold Conservation Award to private landowners in 14 states for extraordinary achievement in voluntary conservation. In Colorado, the $10,000 award is presented with the Colorado Cattlemen’s Association, Colorado Cattlemen’s Agricultural Land Trust, and Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association.
