Palmer Seeks Nominations for 2017 SCCA

Palmer Land Trust is requesting nominations for the seventh-annual Southern Colorado Conservation Awards. The event honors significant conservation achievements of individuals and organizations that advance the well-being of southern Colorado’s communities, people, ecologies, and economies.

The awards focus 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.

Awards are presented in each of the following three categories:

The Stuart P. Dodge Award honors an individual or organization for a lifetime record of conservation achievement.

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, whether through recent efforts contributing to significant land protection, exceptional land management practices, educational programs, through strong grassroots efforts, or by way of example.

The Innovation in Conservation Award pays tribute to 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 conservation partnerships that protect our natural heritage.

Award nominations are being accepted through March 31, 2017, at Palmer Land Trust, 102 S. Tejon Street, Suite 360, Colorado Springs, CO 80903 or email [email protected].

The nomination form and award criteria are available at here.
