Sand County Foundation proudly presents its Leopold Conservation Award to a private landowner who exemplifies the spirit of this emerging land ethic — an individual or a family who translates their deep abiding love for the land into responsible stewardship and management.
In Wisconsin, Sand County Foundation presents the Leopold Conservation Award in partnership with Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation, Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board, and Wisconsin Land and Water Conservation Association. The Leopold Conservation Award recipient receives an Aldo Leopold crystal and $10,000.
Leopold Conservation Awards recognize extraordinary achievement in voluntary conservation, inspire other landowners through their example, and help the general public understand the vital role private landowners can and do play in conservation success.
If you, or someone you know, is a Wisconsin landowner who is committed to land management practices that increase conservation, we invite your application for the Leopold Conservation Award.
