Ed Crall Honored for Sugar Creek Restoration Work

Ed Crall Honored for Sugar Creek Restoration Work
Ed Crall, Caddo County Conservation District Project Coordinator has been honored by the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) for his contributions in restoring the Sugar Creek Watershed. John Mueller, Acting State Conservationist for NRCS made the presentation to Crall at the recent Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts’ 75th Annual Meeting in Oklahoma City. Mueller said, “Ed Crall is being honored for “Standing in the Gap.” The Standing in the Gap Award is given annually to a person who has bridged the gap between NRCS, Landowners, and Conservation Districts, and has made significant conservation progress through hard work and innovation.

Mueller also said, “The Sugar Creek Watershed restoration is a Cooperative Conservation Partnership Initiative (CCPI Project). Mr. Crall has worked hard to secure funding from the NRCS national office to support the priorities of the Conservation District and help farmers and ranchers address critical erosion concerns adjacent to the stream. Over $1.5 million dollars of restoration work has taken place in the Sugar Creek Watershed.” His work has resulted in the Oklahoma Conservation Commission and NRCS being able to effectively supplement the initial efforts of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

This project is part of the response of the Oklahoma Conservation Partnership to repair damage that was caused by the Hurricane Erin in 2007. In accepting the presentation from John Mueller, he thanked NRCS for the award and recognition, and in typical Ed Crall fashion, said “We have more work to do”.
