Nominations for 2021 Oklahoma Leopold Conservation Award Now Open

Mon, 12 Jul 2021 10:36:50 CDT

Nominations for 2021 Oklahoma Leopold Conservation Award Now Open Oklahoma farmers, ranchers and foresters who work hard to care for and maintain the natural resources of their land by improving soil health, water quality and wildlife habitats are encouraged to apply for the 2021 Oklahoma Leopold Conservation Award.

The Sand County Foundation presents the Leopold Conservation Award to private Oklahoma landowners for their extraordinary achievement in voluntary conservation. The $10,000 award is presented annually through cooperative efforts between Sand County Foundation in partnership with American Farmland Trust, and state partners: ITC Great Plains, Noble Research Institute, Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association, Oklahoma Conservation Commission, Oklahoma Farm Bureau Foundation For Agriculture, and USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service.

Presented in honor of renowned conservationist Aldo Leopold, the award recognizes those who inspire others with their dedication to land, water and wildlife habitat management on private, working land. In his influential 1949 book, “A Sand County Almanac,” Leopold called for an ethical relationship between people and the land they own and manage.

Nominations may be submitted on behalf of a landowner, or landowners may nominate themselves. Applications will then be reviewed by an independent panel of agricultural and conservation leaders.

The application deadline date is August 15, 2021. Applications can be emailed to award@sandcountyfoundation.org or postmarked by August 15, and mailed to:
