Leopold Conservation Award applications available


Nebraska

Nebraska Cattlemen, in partnering with Sand County Foundation and Cargill, is seeking nominations for the 2013 Leopold Conservation Award in Nebraska. The winner of the award will receive an Aldo Leopold crystal and a check for $10,000. The Leopold Conservation Award recognizes Nebraska landowners who demonstrate outstanding stewardship and use sustainable management when working with the natural resources that are in their care.

The Leopold Conservation Award is presented in honor of famed conservationist and author Aldo Leopold, who called for an ethical relationship between people and the land they own and manage.

The Leopold Conservation Award in Nebraska is made possible through the generous support of: Burlington Northern Santa Fe, Cargill, Farm Credit Services of America, Natural Resources Conservation Service, Nebraska Cattlemen Research and Education Foundation, Nebraska Environmental Trust, Nebraska Land Trust, Rainwater Basin Joint Venture, Sandhills Task Force, and U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.

The Leopold Conservation Award recipient will be announced April 19 and presented at the Nebraska Cattlemen's Annual Convention in Kearney in December.

Landowners may nominate themselves or others and nominations are also welcome from groups or organizations. The nomination deadline is March 1. For the application/nomination form visit www.nebraskacattlemen.org or contact Kristen Hassebrook at 402-475-2333.
