Do you know a farmer or rancher in California who is committed to land conservation? You can nominate him or her for the Leopold Conservation Award. Each year the award is given to a private landowner who exemplifies conservation and is an inspiration to other landowners.
The Leopold Conservation Award Review Panel will be evaluating properties based on responsible and sustainable land management, economics, innovation, overall land health, and community outreach and leadership.
The deadline for nominations is July 11, 2014.
