Conservation Achievement Award deadline Dec. 1

Throughout the state, Kansans are actively involved in programs to conserve the environment and promote environmental education and outreach. Often, these dedicated groups and individuals go unnoticed.

To give the people the recognition they deserve, the Kansas Wildlife Federation (KWF) annually honors conservation achievement with the Conservation Achievement Awards (CAP). These awards honor Kansans who have devoted themselves to conserving the state's natural resources. Whether through education, communication, or on-ground habitat work, such dedicated people are eligible for CAP awards. KWF is asking conservation-minded citizens to nominate deservinig individuals or groups for their contributions.

KWF honors those who have made special efforts in the areas of land and soil conservation, youth conservation, conservation communication, conservation education, wildlife conservation, water conservation, conservation legislator, conservation farmer/rancher, forestry conservation, stream team conservation, outdoor skills, and conservation organization. A Conservationist Of the Year award is also given.

Nominations are due by early December, but if not enough nominations are received, that deadline may be extended. For more information, contact phone Ken Brunson at 620-672-0792.
