Aug. 1 deadline for Leopold Conservation Award

July 9, 2014 | 0 comments

MADISON

Sand County Foundation and Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation are accepting applications for the $10,000 Leopold Conservation Award, which honors Wisconsin farmers who demonstrate responsible stewardship and management of natural resources.

Applications are due by Aug. 1. For complete application information, visit www.leopoldconservationaward.org.

"Through this outstanding partnership, we have been able to recognize the conservation efforts of the Hebbe, Koepke, Bragger and Cates families who have built a strong tradition of sustainable agriculture, but they are not the only farming families doing exceptional work for natural resources in Wisconsin," said Brent Haglund, president of Sand County Foundation. "We look forward to honoring more innovative farmers who are committed to the enhancement of Wisconsin's landscape."

Given in honor of Aldo Leopold's Land Ethic, the Leopold Conservation Award recognizes extraordinary achievement in voluntary conservation, inspires other landowners in their communities through these examples and provides a visible forum where leaders from the agricultural community are recognized as conservation leaders outside of the industry. In his influential book, A Sand County Almanac (1949), Leopold called for an ethical relationship between people and the land they own and manage, which he called "an evolutionary possibility and an ecological necessity."

"The Wisconsin Farm Bureau is proud to join Sand County Foundation in saluting the innovative conservation practices and work that Wisconsin farmers do each day to enhance our environment," said Jim Holte, Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation President.

The Leopold Conservation Award in Wisconsin is made possible through the generous support of the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, American Transmission Company, Badgerland Financial, We Energies, Alliant Energy Foundation, UW-Extension, Farm Credit, Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation and the Wisconsin Corn Growers Association.
