Chesapeake Energy Partners With Oklahoma Association of Conservation Disticts in Stewardship Week Celebration

Mon, 04 Apr 2011 6:59:52 CDT

Chesapeake Energy Partners With Oklahoma Association of Conservation Disticts in Stewardship Week Celebration As part of their continued commitment to Oklahoma and the health of its environment, Chesapeake Energy Corporation and the Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts (OACD) announced today they will partner in celebrating Stewardship Week in Oklahoma, April 24 through May 1, 2011.


“We are honored that Chesapeake Energy is partnering with us to recognize the hard work of agriculture producers and other landowners in conserving our soil, water, air, wildlife habitats and other natural resources,” Joe Parker, president of OACD said. “We are deeply appreciative of Chesapeake’s continued support of our state’s farmers, ranchers and other landowners and all they do to protect the environment.   It’s also important that we educate all Oklahomans on the importance of the stewardship ethic and the need to care for our environment. We are glad to have Chesapeake working with us to do this.”


Stewardship Week is one of the world's largest conservation-related observances. Since 1955, the National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) and OACD have sponsored the national Stewardship Week program. During the week, local conservation districts work with media outlets, communities, faith-based groups and local schools to promote the concept of stewardship. The concept involves personal and social responsibility, including a duty to learn about and improve natural resources so we use them wisely and leave a rich legacy for future generations.


“Chesapeake is pleased to support the Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts and to help recognize the outstanding conservation work of Oklahoma landowners,” said Teresa Rose, Director of Community Relations for Chesapeake. “Chesapeake’s commitment to the environment is one we take very seriously and that’s why it’s so important we recognize the work of those who are exceptional stewards of the land.”



“This is a great partnership, Chesapeake Energy and OACD,” Clay Pope, executive director of OACD said. “By working together we can help ensure that all Oklahomans, both rural and urban, know the importance of protecting and conserving our natural resources. Farmers and ranchers were the first environmentalists and are the primary stewards of our natural resources, but we must stay vigilant and address the problems of today while avoiding the mistakes of the past. Agriculture producers work hard to conserve our soil, water, air and wildlife habitats, but we still have more to do. We appreciate the help of Chesapeake in promoting Stewardship Week state wide.”
