Kentucky Leopold Conservation Award Seeks Nominees

Know a Kentucky farmer or forester who goes above and beyond in the care and management of natural resources? Nominate them for the 2020 Kentucky Leopold Conservation Award®. Given in honor of renowned conservationist Aldo Leopold, the award recognizes landowners who inspire others with their dedication to land, water and wildlife habitat management on private, working land.

“A conservationist is one who is humbly aware that with each stroke [of the axe] he is writing his signature on the face of the land.” – Aldo Leopold, A Sand County Almanac
