As part of their fall conference, the Center for Behavioral and Experimental Agri-Environmental Research (CBEAR) presented Jeremy Peters, chief executive officer of the National Association of Conservation Districts, with the 2017 CBEAR Prize for Agri-Environmental Innovation.
In presenting the award, CBEAR Outreach Director Mark Masters commented, “Jeremy’s effective leadership of NACD is based, in large part, on his ability to bridge the gaps that often exist between research, policy, and application. The relationships established and opportunities facilitated through Jeremy’s hard work have greatly informed, and improved, CBEAR’s research and outreach efforts.”
Upon accepting the award on behalf of his NACD colleagues and the thousands of conservation districts they represent, Peters encouraged CBEAR to continue developing innovative, incentive-based approaches to improve the delivery and effectiveness of conservation programs.
“The team at CBEAR understands that truly engaging America’s landowners - our grassroots NACD membership - is the key to continued improvements in soil health, water conservation, and sustainable management of our natural resources,” Peters said. “We value our partnership with CBEAR and see many opportunities for future collaboration.”
