Boulder County honors individuals or groups with its Land Conservation Awards for outstanding contributions made to the conservation, preservation and protection of land-based environmental resources.
Now Accepting Nominations for 2018 Land Conservation Awards
Anyone may nominate individuals, families or organizations that have made outstanding contributions in Boulder County in Land Conservation, Environmental Stewardship, or Historic Preservation.
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. The project or transfer of land must have been completed within the last five years.
Nominations are due January 31, 2018.
