The ninth annual Southern Colorado Conservation Awards

The Southern Colorado Conservation Awards (SCCA) recognizes individuals and organizations dedicated to stewardship, education, and innovation in conservation impacting southern Colorado. We receive inspiring and diverse nominations every year, and this year was no exception. We are excited to begin featuring this year's award winners, each of which have made a huge impact in Colorado. 

The Awards

The Stuart P. Dodge Award honors a lifetime in achievement in conservation. 

The Environmental Stewardship Award recognizes an individual or organization(s) that has positively impacted the land and the way members of our communities understand and respect their relationship to it.

The Innovation in Conservation Award honors an individual, group, project, or program that has advanced the cause of conservation by developing new conservation models, creating new conservation funding mechanisms, or implementing unique partnerships that protect our natural heritage.

The Inspired Future Award celebrates an individual, program, business, or organization that is undertaking an activity or effort that boldly frames the future of conservation, exhibits gumption and grit in the face of challenges, and encourages others with the resilience and optimism it will take to advance conservation.
