The Leopold Conservation Award Story

May 7th, 2015

More than three quarters of the land in the U.S. is in private ownership, but we all have a stake in what happens on privately-owned agricultural land. It affects our air, our water and our nation’s wildlife. Sand County Foundation’s Leopold Conservation Award Program honors landowners across the U.S. for outstanding voluntary achievement in conservation practices that improve their bottom line and our environment. Our award recipients are ambassadors of natural resources management and its critical importance to the entire community of the United States. This is their story.
