Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts and Chesapeake Energy to partner on Oustanding District Award

Mon, 19 Sep 2011 14:19:45 CDT

Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts and Chesapeake Energy to partner on Oustanding District Award As part of their commitment to Oklahoma and their joint effort to promote a healthy environment, Chesapeake Energy Corporation and the Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts (OACD) have come together once again to honor the efforts of Oklahomans who devote their time and energy to protect and conserve our natural resources by sponsoring the Chesapeake Outstanding Oklahoma Conservation District Award.

"We are truly honored to again have Chesapeake, Oklahoma's most active driller and largest clean natural gas producer, as our partner in furthering conservation in Oklahoma," Joe Parker, President of OACD said. "Their continued sponsorship of this award and their commitment to protecting and conserving our natural resources is greatly appreciated. They are truly committed to the conservation and protection of our soil, water, air, and wildlife habitats."

The Chesapeake Outstanding Conservation District Award is presented annually to the Oklahoma Conservation District judged as having the best overall conservation program in the state. This program includes the Districts' efforts to work with land owners to protect and conserve natural resources, education and youth programs, and community outreach activities. The winning district will receive $2,500 and recognition at the Governors' Conservation Award Ceremony held in the Blue Room of the State Capitol during the spring legislative session.   The winner will also receive a sign recognizing them as the outstanding conservation district for 2011 for their district home office.
A trophy will also be presented to the district.

"It's an honor for Chesapeake to partner again with the Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts to recognize the outstanding conservation district in Oklahoma.

Chesapeake is committed to being a leader in a wide variety of areas including the protection of Oklahoma's environment and bountiful natural resources," said Teresa Rose, Chesapeake Director of Community Relations. "Participating in the sponsorship and presentation of this award is an honor for Chesapeake and hopefully makes a difference by bringing to light how environmental responsibility is so important to the future prosperity of our state."

"This is a wonderful partnership between Chesapeake and OACD," Clay Pope, Executive Director of OACD said. "Through their continued sponsorship of this and other conservation programs and through their continuing commitment to the natural resources of Oklahoma, Chesapeake has proven themselves true supporters of our state. By working together we can help ensure that the next generation of Oklahomans, both rural and urban, has the productive base of natural resources we now enjoy while maintaining healthy soils, clean water, and abundant wildlife. We are proud to be working together to accomplish these goals."
