Nominees sought for conservation farming award

Do you know of a farmer, landowner, educator, organization or municipality that has adopted and been implementing and promoting conservations practices as part of their routine operation and way of doing business? You should consider nominating them for the Outstanding Conservation Farmer or Outstanding Conservations of the Year.

The Monroe County Land Stewardship Awards Committee is seeking nominations for Outstanding Conservation Farmer of the Year and Conservationist of the Year.

The Monroe County Land Stewardship Awards Committee is a group led by the Monroe County Land Conservation Department that also includes the local DNR foresters, NRCS, UW Extension and some farmers and landowners who are interested in recognizing individuals who are doing an outstanding job of using conservation practices and promoting conservation.

One of the awards they are seeking nominations for is Outstanding Conservation Farmer of the Year. If you know of a farmer, currently farming, who has a long track record of implementing conservation practices as part of their farming operation, you should consider nominating them for recognition of their efforts.

Outstanding Conservationist is another award the group is taking nominations for. This award is open to any landowner (who is not actively farming), educator, organization, municipality or other entity that has demonstrated a long standing commitment to conservation.

Nomination forms are available at the Monroe County Land Conservation Office, or view their website: https://tinyurl.com/y8gayy7k, and are due by Sept. 1.

Award recipients will be recognizedat the Stewardship Awards Banquet on Jan. 26, 2019, along with recognition of the Outstanding County Tree Farmer recipient.
