Nominations are now being accepted for the Land Conservation Awards

Nominations accepted through Jan. 31

Boulder County, Colo. - The Boulder County Parks & Open Space Department is accepting nominations for the annual Land Conservation Awards until Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2017.

Anyone may nominate individuals, families, or organizations that have made outstanding contributions in Boulder County in Environmental Stewardship or Historic Preservation.

The 2017 Land Conservation Award has been awarded, and will be presented to Ron Stewart, the recently retired director of Parks & Open Space.

Special consideration will be given to land conservation or historic preservation activities that particularly affect unincorporated Boulder County and for activities that demonstrate ongoing effort. One-time efforts resulting in lasting benefits to the county’s environmental landscape will also be favored for selection. Other award selection criteria include conservation activities that are a model for others or that increase public awareness of land conservation.

People may not nominate themselves nor are they permitted to nominate organizations of which they are an officer or director. Official projects of federal, state, county, special district, and municipal government agencies are not eligible to be nominated.

For more information please go to https://www.bouldercounty.org/open-space/management/land-conservation-awards/ or contact Vivienne Jannatpour at vjannatpour@bouldercounty.org or 303-678-6277.

The Boulder County Commissioners will present the awards during volunteer week on April 26, at the county Parks & Open Space headquarters in Longmont.
