Noble Foundation to again sponsor the Outstanding Conservation District Director Award


As part of their continuing commitment to the agriculture producers of Oklahoma and to our state's natural resources, The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation and the Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts Jan. 16 announced that they will again partner together in presenting the Outstanding Conservation District Director Award." This award will go to the district director judged to have done the most toward conserving our natural resources and helping the bottom line of landowners in our state.

"We are honored to have the Noble Foundation as a partner in recognizing the work of our directors," Scotty Herriman, president of OACD, said. "These directors volunteer their time to conserve our natural resources and help support our communities. The support of the Noble Foundation now gives us a chance to better recognize their commitment to Oklahoma."

The Outstanding Conservation District Director Award is given annually to a Conservation District Director, chosen from the 440 directors from throughout Oklahoma for doing the most to help landowners conserve our soil, water, air and wildlife habitats through education, assistance and support. This award is presented each spring at the Governors Conservation Awards Ceremony at the Blue Room of the State Capitol during Conservation Day.

"Our founder, Lloyd Noble, created the Noble Foundation because of his concern for the land and those who manage it," said Wadell Altom, senior vice president and director of the Noble Foundation Agricultural Division. "It is very appropriate for us to help recognize those who are assisting land managers at the local level and to promote partnerships with all who work to conserve our natural resources."

The Noble Foundation, headquartered in Ardmore, Okla., is a nonprofit organization conducting agricultural, forage improvement and plant biology research; providing grants to non-profit charitable, educational and health organizations; and assisting farmers and ranchers through educational and consultative agricultural programs.

"This is a great partnership, the Noble Foundation and OACD," Clay Pope, executive director of OACD, said. "By sponsoring this award, the Noble Foundation is helping us recognize the contributions of those district directors who volunteer their time to help conserve our natural resources. The Noble Foundation is truly committed to helping farmers and ranchers with the conservation and protection of our soil, water, air, and wildlife habitats."
