The Southern Colorado Conservation Awards (SCCA) recognizes individuals and organizations that are dedicated to stewardship, education, and innovation in conservation impacting southern Colorado. Each of the eight years of SCCA, we have had many inspiring and diverse nominations. We are currently seeking the innovative, exciting, and uplifting stories happening around southern Colorado. See below for information on nominating a potential awardee.

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.
