The Southern Colorado Conservation Awards (SCCA) honors the significant achievements of individuals and organizations that, through their conservation efforts, advance the well-being of Colorado’s communities, people, ecologies, and economies. The annual event focuses on conservation achievements in the broadest sense—knowing that successful conservation involves more than just resource protection; it involves a wide variety of champions across political, educational, business, research, and land management spectrums.
Recognizing 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.
