The Nature Conservancy of Oklahoma and the Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts (OACD) have announced that they once again will join forces to honor the efforts of the Citizens of Oklahoma who protect and conserve natural resources by presenting the Nature Conservancy Outstanding Conservation Landowner/Cooperator Award to the Oklahoma landowner chosen for incorporating natural resource conservation on his property. 

“We are honored to again have the Nature Conservancy as our partner in furthering conservation in Oklahoma,” Trey Lam, President of OACD said.  “Their sponsorship of this award and their commitment to protecting and conserving our natural resources is greatly appreciated.  They are truly committed to the conservation and protection of our soil, water, air, and wildlife habitats.”

The Outstanding Landowner/Cooperator award is presented annually to the Oklahoma Agriculture Producer judged as having the most extensive and effective natural resource conservation initiative on their property.  This includes efforts to conserve and protect Oklahoma’s soil, water, air and wildlife habitats through sound stewardship practices on working agricultural Land.  The winner of this award will receive $1,500 and a trophy recognizing the accomplishments at the Governors Conservation Awards Ceremony at the Blue Room of the State Capitol during the spring legislative session.
