Conservation Achievement Award deadline Dec. 1
PRATT -- 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 these people the recognition they deserve, the Kansas Wildlife Federation (KWF) annually honors conservation achievements with the Conservation Achievement Program (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 individuals or groups who have done such work and nominate them 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 presented as the top prize.

Nominations are due by Dec. 1. For more information, phone Ken Brunson at 620-672-0792 or email him at brunson@sctelcom.net.
